Tricks, Treats, and Sweets for Halloween


Halloween is a day that has both kids and adults lining up to sample every succulent piece of candy that comes their way, so why not choose something that satisfies your sweet tooth without compromising your health?

This year, Union Market is offering an array of yummy treats that will help you steer the kiddos away from preservatives, GMO’s, artificial sweeteners, and high fructose corn syrup—because Halloween is spooky enough without mysterious ingredients!

Fill your front-door bowl with candies from Yum Earth, like their gummy fruits, candy corn, or fruit—based lollipops, all of which are certified organic, non-GMO, and and vegan and gluten-free. Glee Gum is another great option. This sugar-free, all-natural chewing gum comes in individual mini boxes and a variety of fruity flavors.

Our shelves are also stocked with certified Fair Trade, organic lollipops from Wholesome Sweets and allergy-friendly chocolates from Enjoy Life. These individually wrapped squares made with rice milk and are free of gluten, nuts, dairy, soy, and other common allergens.

For a more classic treat, try our Lake Champlain Chocolates. You’ll hope that no one rings the doorbell so you can enjoy an assortment of milk and dark chocolates, caramels, and truffles all to yourself.

We’ll also be offering seasonal petit fours along with our usual variety of baked goods. These mini layer cakes are dressed up in their Halloween best, hand-decorated to grab attention on at any Halloween party or gathering of ghouls, ghosts, and vampires.
