Introduce an indie - Studio Chocolate & Shop Zero

Two fabulous Independent Nottingham businesses will pop-up at Old Market Square this coming week as part of an exciting market.

Introducing Studio Chocolate & Shop Zero

Nottingham Continental Market returns to Old Market Square from Thursday 8th July to Sunday 11th July for 4 days of food, drink and shopping. Joining the roster of stalls and stands will be two of Nottingham's most popular local businesses, Studio Chocolate and Shop Zero.



Studio Chocolate

Studio Chocolate holds the golden ticket to what may well be the most beautiful chocolates in the city. Usually tucked away in Cobden Chambers, the Studio Chocolate team will be gracing their open-air stall with vibrant hand painted bonbons, baked goods and iced chocolate drinks. 

Head chocolatier Ellie and her small but fiercely creative team specialise in creating decadent sweet treats. Their variety of bonbon collections make for the perfect gifts, with their gorgeous packaging and chocolates inspired by artists, musicians, the solar system, and the seasons. The 'Playlist Collection' is a great example, with each chocolate named after famous musicians such as Beyonce, Bowie and Queen. 

You can catch Studio Chocolate at Old Market Square 8th -9th July from 10am-7pm

Don't forget to follow Studio Chocolate on Facebook and Instagram to stay up to date with all their latest creations. 



Shop Zero

Nottingham’s very own zero waste shop, set up to empower people to live more sustainably, is usually found on St. James Street. Now they are taking centre stage and popping up in Old Market Square. On their stall, you will be able to find eco-friendly swaps for home and personal care, and gifts for a zero- waste lifestyle, many of which are locally made.

At Shop Zero, shoppers can reduce their plastic-footprint by using their own containers for food and detergent refills. Business owner Sarah is super friendly and enthusiastic about supporting her customers with their own eco journey. Just making one small change can have a positive effect on our planet and Sarah’s here to help. Be that re-filling containers, using a travel mug, making household cleaning swaps, you will find your next step at Shop Zero.

You can catch Shop Zero at Old Market Square 10th-11th July 10am-7pm

Follow Shop Zero on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to stay up to date with all their latest products and handy tips to reduce your plastic-footprint.
