On Saturday, a chocolaty holiday marketplace will take over the San Francisco Chocolate Factory (286 12th St. at Folsom). From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Dec. 5, the SFCF will offer chocolates from Bridge Brands
along with special treats from local merchants. Expect deal pricing on collections for lovers of milk chocolate, books
, coffee and/or tea
, and wine -- in short, a lot of lovers. If organic dark chocolate or obsidian dark is more your thing, they'll have those, too. Lest you think the marketplace will be solely an exercise in gluttony and consumerism, ponder this: 10 percent of the proceeds will be passed on to The Glide Foundation, for community outreach.
