Website now has a shopping cart!

You can now order online directly through the website. Payments are via Paypal and orders can be picked up at the market or shipped. If you want to pay for your order in person, then it is still simplest to email your order to takeafancy@gmail.com (alternatively, you can use the shopping cart and cut/paste your order into an email).

Check it out!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving! Many thanks for a wonderful summer season! The winter markets are just around the corner! As I put on my toque and bundle up layer after layer, many of you will wonder if it's the same chocolate lady underneath the scarves and mittens! But Fall is my favorite time for making chocolate (and eating it too!) so I hope to see many of you out this Fall/Winter season!
You can check out our website www.takeafancy.ca for Halloween chocolate. The chocolate fancy leaves make great Thanksgiving favours. The Christmas seasonal chocolate will be up on the website soon. I am hoping to have a shopping cart up and running before December, so you will be able to order directly off the website, but for you now, you can always email me any order requests!
As an additional note: I am still working with my contacts in Belize to bring some beans up here. Keep your fingers crossed for some amazing Belizean chocolate!

Belizean Chocolate Coming Soon!

Cacao trees, Toledo District, Belize
Well, I'm back from Belize and back in the chocolate factory. Production was a bit delayed due to some mechanical difficulties, but we are slowly getting back to business and looking forward to working with these Belizean beans! We're hoping to have some Belizean chocolate ready in a few weeks. I know you are all eagerly waiting to try it!
I am grateful I had the opportunity to visit such an incredible country. Such amazingly warm people, I was truly sad to leave. I want to especially thank Abner, Pedro and Armando for spending a lot of time, with a little Canadian chocolate maker. Abelina, Ray and Gomier - it was a true pleasure to be in your company. Jo and Chris - the best reason to visit Ambergris Caye! Kate and Ian - we are still wondering why we ever left Hickatee - thanks so much for your hospitality! I am sure we will be back again soon!

Year of the Dragon

I hope that everyone has had a great start to the new year so far! We were at our first 2012 market last Saturday, at Nat Bailey Stadium. It was a bit of a snowy start, but so great to see everyone after my holiday break. It's hard to believe that it's February already! We're looking forward to the rest of the winter market season at the Vancouver and Royal City winter farmers markets!
