Last Taste of Vacation: Chilmark Chocolates

We had to leave Martha’s Vineyard, but we took a taste of the island with us: Treats from Chilmark Chocolates, a hopping little business beloved both for its confections and its commitment to local youth — the owners employ young people with a range of disabilities (some are mentally retarded, deaf, blind, or have cerebral palsy) to make and sell their candies. I wait in a long line every year — while Chrissy carts the kids off to the library or playground — for my turn to squeeze into the tiny shop and make my selections.

Sweet.
