Pazzo Marco gelato is made from scratch in small batches beginning with farm fresh, local, organic milk from grass-fed Coastal Jersey cows. The milk is collected fresh from the farm just after the morning milking time. We add hand selected premium ingredients: free range cage-free organic eggs, 80% dark Valrhona chocolate, Italian hazelnuts, California toasted almonds and Sicilian pistachios, Suisun Valley peaches and apricots, Lake County Bartlett pears, Meyer lemons and Bergamot oranges freshly picked from our garden, Sebastopol strawberries, and local huckleberry. Our goal is that you will enjoy eating our gelato as much as we enjoy making it.


Celebrate with an assortment of gelato and sorbetto pairings from our half-pint collection.
Available exclusively at Surf Market in Gualala. Flavors alternate weekly.

Pazzo Marco Creamery Founder Marco Moramarco

We created Pazzo Marco Creamery out of our passion for local, natural and delicious wholesome food. Our small batch artisan gelato and cheese are crafted with local organic milk in our micro creamery on the ridge of the Mendocino Coast near the town of Gualala. We create all of our recipes from scratch to bring out the best in flavor and texture. We believe artisan food is truly handmade where scrupulous attention is devoted to every detail. Our goal is to achieve a lovingly handcrafted product that delights the pallet – infused with love and natural local goodness.

Our Philosophy

  • Create premium products that delight the senses and that are nutritious and delicious.
  • Support our community, local farmers, and our purveyors.
  • Select the best, fresh, in-season ingredients, locally first when available.
  • Introduce ingredients early in our process to ensure optimal flavor, consistency, and quality.
  • Choose purveyors and merchants that share our values by supporting sustainable farming methods, fair trade, and care for our precious, natural resources, and the environment in which we live.
