Hilliards Chocolates is a cherished artisanal New England brand with roots dating back to 1924 when Perley and Jessie Hilliard opened their first chocolate shop near Boston. Their commitment to crafting chocolates by hand with top-notch ingredients remains at the core of this family-run local business. At one point, the Hilliard family expanded to 14 stores in Greater Boston and Connecticut, and their inventions in chocolate machinery still influence the industry. Today, their descendants, Maegan and Erin, carry on this sweet legacy, combining tradition with innovation and we are lucky to have a taste of Hilliards Chocolates here at the Market.
