Scores of visitors from around the Algarve made their way to the 4th Chocolate Fair held last weekend at the Loulé Municipal Market, and it did not disappoint.
Chocolate-lovers from near and far were delighted with the 17 different stands showcasing their wares, which ranged from crèpes to bonbons, cupcakes to chocolate fountains, hot drinks to new novelties such as chocolate sushi.
Among the many exhibitors were local sweet-makers as well as two schools taking part in the event, Loulé Secondary School and the Algarve Hotel School.
Given the response to this year’s Chocolate Fair the organisers have already said that it will be back in 2015.
The fair also aims to promote local, regional and national products while stressing nutritional characteristics, culinary versatility, and the touristic potential of chocolate.
Multiple stands set up at the municipal market will once again be selling everything from sweets to fondues and hot drinks, giving everyone a perfect excuse for a delicious Valentine’s Day present.
