Maker's Spotlight: Markham & Fitz
Lauren Blanco and Preston Stewart started Markham & Fitz (previously known as Hello Cocoa) in 2014. Visit their factory at 4170 M.L.K. Jr Blvd in Fayetteville, AR. They craft their artisan chocolate with an eye on ethical sourcing, sustainability, all natural ingredients, and delicious recipes.
Fun fact: their new name comes from a boy and a dog. Who's who? You'll have to drop them a note or stop by their shop to find out.
Look for their new dream chocolate shop at the 8th Street Market in Bentonville (a community focused food hub supporting local farmers and real food entrepreneurs) coming December 2017.
