Handmade chocolate producer Boutique Aromatique is the latest stall holder to join Nottingham’s monthly Regional and Speciality Food and Drink Market.

The Pleasley Vale firm, run by Shelly Preston, will be making its debut at the March market, which takes place in the Old Market Square on Friday March 19th and Saturday March 20th.

Boutique Aromatique, which produces handmade chocolate with an aromatherapy twist using aromatics and oils, will be one of around 30 stalls at the March market selling regional and speciality products.

Organised by East Midlands Fine Foods in conjunction with Nottingham City Council, the market sells a wide range of fine food and drink including cheese, pickles, meat, smoked fish, beer, game, coffee and other items.

“We are delighted to welcome Boutique Aromatique to the Regional and Speciality Food and Drink Market in March to sell their products alongside some of the other fine food and drink producers and suppliers from the region,” said Jo Murphy, of East Midlands Fine Foods.

In April, which marks the third anniversary of the launch of the market, shoppers will be treated to an extra chance to buy their favourite products.

As well as the regular market, taking place on Friday April 16th and Saturday April 17th, there will be a special market the following weekend as part of St George’s Day celebrations in the Old Market Square.

A small market featuring stalls selling traditional English fare will be held on Friday 23rd April and Saturday 24th April.

The Regional and Speciality Food and Drink Markets run from 9am to 4.30pm.
