Every Sunday you can see Chocology at the wonderful Port Jefferson Farmer’s Market, and almost every Sunday it is an absolutely gorgeous day. But this past Sunday, June 28th, didn’t start off that way. When we went to set up our tent it was a complete downpour and we didn’t quite know what to expect. But, it turns out that sometimes it’s great to relax on a rainy day and sometimes it’s an even better idea to go to a local Farmer’s Market. Let’s be honest, what can be better than a rainy day, local vendors, and some Fat Ass Fudge?
The day went by so fast. In the early morning, we saw all of our regulars. We heard many comments about how they, “didn’t know if [we] would be [there],” but we would quickly reassure each one that if they were going to take the time out of their day to come and see us then we would do the same for them. We commit to being where we say we will be “Rain or Shine”. As soon as they heard that, their worried faces turned smiles. This was especially true as they sampled some of our latest greatest fudge, because who can resist a delicious mouth-watering brick of fudge at least once a week?
All these regulars drew in crowds of newbies who’d never tasted our fudge. But one look at our “Fat Ass Fudge” banner, and one whiff of our fudge and they were there like a bee to a flower. It turned into one of our busiest market days. We had moments of the day where we were sold out of half our flavors, luckily we live only five minutes away so we could quickly restock all of our decadent flavors.
Chocology also had a little extra help which may have added to the fun of the day. Our newest addition to our team, Arielle, has been brought on as an intern for the summer. She decided to pop by for a visit and was put right to work, fitting in perfectly with our rhythm and style. With the extra set of hands we were able to do more tastings at once, which helped get more people to experience a proper fudge tasting.
So, from rainy day and poor outlook to new friends, new customers, new staff we turned this day around and made it into a truly fudgetastic day. We’d love to know how you spent your Sunday!
