Leading up to the market, we’ll be sharing vendor spotlight posts that give you a chance to meet some of our amazing vendors in advance of the market. We are really excited to welcome Tamara of Batch Craft to their first Vintage Charlotte Summer Market. Batch Craft is an artisan chocolate bar maker, if the photos alone don’t make you drool, here is Tamara with a little of their story:
As lifelong artists, everything influences — and is an expression of — our making. Our current releases feature limited edition, dark chocolate bars as well as travel-inspired drawings and paintings. While art and chocolate might seem an unexpected pairing, both require heavy doses of curiosity, ingenuity, tenacity and craft.
We made our first small batch of bean-to-bar chocolate more than 3 years ago and are currently still one of only two bean-to-bar makers in South Carolina. We use only natural ingredients and the best direct trade cacao beans in the world. We often explore new regions of the world for inspiration as well as partner with local makers including Pure Intentions Coffee, Free Range Brewing, Bulls Bay Saltworks (Charleston, SC) and Dover Vineyards (Concord, NC.)
