MEET THE BAKERS BLOCK
For the month of June we are having a series of POP UP Shops at our Ellerslie location. To help you get to know the vendors a little better we are going to be introducing you to them a little bit before hand.
Bakers Block Chocolates is well known for our exquisitely handcrafted truffles and delicious chocolate bark. These products change throughout the year to reflect the different seasons.
WHAT IS YOUR COMPANY NAME? HOW DID YOU COME UP WITH IT?
I wanted to mimic the idea of the wooden butchers block table but translate it to pastry and chocolate! The result was Bakers Block!

Erin Tompkins! It is just me and any friends I can con into helping me at busy times and for taste testing.

Salted caramel bark, and toasted white chocolate bars. The "I Love You YEG!" Truffle collection has become very popular as well!
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE PRODUCT?Espresso bark and the River Valley Berry truffle from the "I Love You YEG" truffle collection. I source dehydrated fruit powders from a local edmonton maker (Joos).

STORES?There's a couple ways to find us right now.We run a small boutique by appointment only.We do the occasional market, which are listed on our Facebook page.You can also only shoot us a message through our social media, Facebook or instagram and order directly from us.
