    What is the Holiday Market?
    Imagine festive wooden stalls, sparkling string lights, and warm fire pits: this gathering will bring together an exciting ensemble of artisans, artists, makers, and fine goods enthusiasts in a stunning winter wonderland. The Maker Show amplifies businesses owned by BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, women, and other underrepresented groups.

    Craft Chocolate
    As a craft chocolate company, our staff should bring an eagerness to learn about our products. Part of the job—beyond selling chocolate bars—is imparting some of the values and philosophies of craft chocolate to customers. We view each transaction as an opportunity to illuminate the complex and fascinating process of turning cacao beans into chocolate, thus a passion for slow food and sustainable agriculture is greatly valued in this job. As with our Cape Cod workshop and café, we seek to foster an exuberant, upbeat, and compassionate work environment where all feel supported.
