Their artisan quality products have been widely available since 2016 at regional farmers markets, through a network of over 65 retail partners ranging from the Adirondacks to the Hudson Valley, and online at SaratogaChocolateCo.com. Saratoga Chocolate Co. is excited to make available even more products and flavors and specialty items like truffles and bonbons available at the new location.
“We are thrilled to launch our flagship store at the Saratoga Marketplace. We are so encouraged by the community support we received from our customers during this unprecedented time. It is that support that has given us the confidence to launch our business into this next phase of retail, rooted in downtown Saratoga Springs.”
Despite the pandemic, chocolate sales have been strong. “Apparently people under stress consume a lot of chocolate,” said tongue-in-cheek by store owner Allison Rose. “We’re happy to help with that, and offer lots of other great reasons to buy chocolate – for holidays, weddings, special events and occasions, and of course, daily consumption!”
Wrapping up the summer tourist season, and then heading into the fall and holiday season, the shop will offer all manners of seasonal favorites like summertime s’mores and key lime pie truffles, fall features like pumpkin caramels and decadent hot chocolates, and a variety of holiday gifts and sweets like chocolate Santas and peppermint bark.
“We are thrilled for Saratoga Chocolate Co. to join the Saratoga Marketplace family. We are a group of thoughtfully curated and well appointed shops that compliment each other’s offerings with a wide range of products for the discerning shopper.” said building owner Mark Straus
