The Magic Fountain, the popular ice-cream destination in Mattituck, is for sale.
Owner Choudry Ali said he plans to move to Utah, where he and his wife have a home. He added that he may open an ice cream shop there.
Ali said in a telephone interview that The Magic Fountain was busy, even in February, and that his decision was based on a long-standing desire to relocate west. There are bidders for The Magic Fountain, but Ali wouldn't discuss details. He plans to stay open until a sale is complete.
In addition to all the familiar flavors, The Magic Fountain has offered such ice creams as coconut-avocado, coconut-jalapeno, goat cheese, red-wine strawberries, olive oil and sweet corn.
Among the current flavors of the month are chocolate-peanut butter chunk pie and Mighty Joe Young, with bananas, caramel and nuts.
The Magic Fountain, 9825 Main Rd., Mattituck; 631-298-4908.
