Celebrate Chocolate Day on July 7 with these PFM Vendors

From indulging in raw, artisan or simply the “experience,” we love every kind of chocolaty delight that our vendors produce. In honor of Chocolate Day this July 7, we share with you the range of chocolate decadence available at Portland Farmers Market.

Alma Chocolate 

 

 

Alma Chocolate

Alma was established in 2005 as a small batch chocolatier in the Pacific Northwest with an early following built within the farmers market. Their search for equal parts nourishment and decadence has since blossomed into a variety of other choco-centric goods. Now a national name, Alma has never strayed from their Portland friends and neighbors. With handmade chocolates and confections incorporating local ingredients as much and as often as possible, Alma always sources from sustainable, fair trade, and humane cocoa farms.
