One of our longest running vendors at the Farmers Market, Holm Made Toffee is back for their sixth year in a row. This small, family-run business was started as a hobby by Donna Holm in 2007, and is now run by Donna, who makes all the toffee by hand and her daughter-in-law Randi Holm, who manages sales, marketing and events. Donna is often joined by her other children and grandchildren who like to help, so it is a true family affair.
Over the years, the company has grow slowly but surely through word of mouth. They participate in numerous markets and events across the state and can also be found in 50+ stores in the Pacific NW.
Randi said, “We LOVE the NorthWest Crossing Farmers Market because we get to meet lots of new faces each week – as well as see familiar ones. Not only do a lot of Bend locals attend, but also a lot of tourists. We love hearing stories from our customers on why they are purchasing our candy and where it gets to travel. Last year we heard from folks taking it all the way to Europe or even just home down the street!”
In addition, the company has teamed up with many other market vendors on some collaboration projects. Jeff and Juli Labhart from Bonta Gelato use some of Holm Made Toffee’s flavors in their gelato, and so does Addy Mac’s Ice Cream in their toffee flavor ice cream. Holm Made Toffee also uses dried lavender buds from market vendor Tumalo Lavender in their lavender toffee. Partnerships made in heaven – or at the NorthWest Crossing Farmers Market as the case may be.
Randi continued, “The market has grown A TON since I first started participating and it has been great to see what new vendors, musical acts and FUN are here in 2016!”
