The sold-out Natural Marketplace nearly doubled in size over the past 3 years, anchored by an enhanced 'Taste of Gourmet' area showcasing artisans conducting upscale pairings and demonstrations throughout the show. For the third year in a row, Innovation Alley featured a handful of candy- and snack-related startup companies who ended the show with solid contacts that will jump start their foray into the industry and onto retailer's shelves. A park-like concourse adorned with trees and music featured market shops included a fashion kiosk with custom-made dresses from iconic candy wrappers and several candy- and snack-themed jewelry and accessory stores. Mark your calendars! The 2014 Sweets & Snacks Expo will be held May 20 - 22 at Chicago's McCormick Place.
