As if anyone is surprised, Markham & Fitz Chocolate located in Bentonville, was listed as one of the top 50 chocolate shops in America recently by Food & Wine.

  • "Lauren Blanco and Preston Stewart came to chocolate from two very different backgrounds, cultural anthropology, and chemistry, but however they got here, it's safe to say they have arrived, in all senses of the world." Food & Wine

  • About: Markham & Fitz, located at 8th Street Market in Bentonville, opened its doors in December of 2017. Their bean to bar chocolate craft is some of the best, if not the best we've ever had. Kudos to you folks and keep up the work!

In a short timeframe, Markham & Fitz has scaled in a great way. We were in Savannah, Georgia a few weeks ago and found some of their chocolate in a local coffee shop. You can learn more about the chocolatiers HERE
