Get ready for a weekend of total sensory pleasure
This October, to celebrate the culmination of Chocolate Week, Canopy Market is collaborating with Cocoa Runners to bring you a one-off celebration of all things cocoa. This is the largest gathering of bean-to-bar, artisan chocolate makers from around the globe.
October 19th – 21st, Canopy Market will be packed with the best bean-to-bar makers with tastings, talks, and demonstrations, all under West Handyside Canopy’s beautifully restored Victorian glass and steel roof.
Visitors will be able to sample rare, single-origin chocolates and meet the makers from a line-up including the award-winning Pump Street Bakery, who hand-make small batch chocolate in Orford, and Franceschi Chocolate from Caracas, Venezuela (one of the world’s most famous growing regions), bringing their rescued heritage Criollo and Trinitarian cacao varieties to London.
A series of chocolate tastings led by the producers themselves will give visitors the opportunity to learn about and try a range of chocolate alongside food and drink pairings.
The chocolate special will take place alongside the regular market, where street food vendors Arancini Bros, Growlers and The Big MELT will be trading as normal amongst others, as well as local design traders including Earl of East London’s hand-poured scented candles, unique handmade jewellery from Nabi London and Turkish hammam towels at Pur London.
The Market runs on Fri (12-6 pm), Sat (11-6pm) and Sun (11-6pm).
