Eduardo Kreindel grew up eating gelato in his native Argentina. Most of the purveyors in Buenos Aires, he says, were Italian immigrants who would divide their time between Argentina and Italy, spending the warmer half of the year in each. It's those flavors he's recapturing with Giovanna, the gelato and sorbet company he started this spring. Kreindel's products are sold in restaurants and at specialty markets around town (Capone, Savenor's, Russo's, and others), and he's now scooping at the Tuesday Lexington Farmers' Market and the Friday Newton Farmers' Market ($3.50 small, $4.50 large, $7.50 pint). There's a long list of flavors, but not everything goes to every market every week. Buy what you can when you see it, because his fantastic scoops aren't melting, they're just disappearing quickly.

LEXINGTON FARMERS' MARKET Corner of Massachusetts Avenue and Fletcher Avenue, Lexington; open Tuesdays from 2 to 6:30 p.m.
NEWTON FARMERS' MARKET American Legion Post 440, 295 California Street, Newton; open Fridays from 1:30 to 6 p.m.
