The FIG Tree will again have a stall at the LESS harvest market in Lancaster between 10am and 5pm on Sunday 22nd September 2019. We will be selling Fair Trade gifts and our bean to bar chocolate made using beans sourced from New Koforidua, Ghana – Africa’s first fair Trade Town. New in stock will be our boxes of 6 vegan chocolates with assorted centres. Limited supply so get there early!

All are welcome to The FIG Tree Chocolate Making Demo starting at 1pm on Monday 12th February in the Refectory at Lancaster Priory.

With the help of our volunteers you can see how FIG Tree chocolate is made from bean to bar.

FIG Tree chocolate will also be available to purchase just in time for Valentine’s Day

We sold plenty of our delicious Bean to Bar chocolate at the Lancaster Mid Winter Market on Friday 16th December and in St. Nics Arcade, Lancaster from 19th – 23rd December. FIG Tree Bean to Bar chocolate is available in 5 delicious flavours; Milk, Milk & Orange, Dark, Dark & Mint and Soya and sold as 40g bars, 100g Milk with Banana and Dark with Raspberry and a variety of speciality chocolates. Each batch is hand made from bean to bar in Garstang the world’s first Fair Trade Town using fair trade ingredients where possible and beans purchased directly from the farmer in New Koforidua, Ghana – the first Fair Trade Town in Africa.

Thanks to everyone who visited us over the Christmas period and thanks go to LESS and St. Nics for enabling us to sell our Bean to Bar chocolate. And remember our Bean to Bar 40g bars are available to buy at Single Step Wholefoods, off Penny St, Lancaster all year round.
