pure soy wax, all cotton wick, high fragrance content, 40 hours approx burn time, 7.4 oz net wt
Our pure soy candle wax burns cleanly, without the smoking and sooting of paraffin wax, a petroleum product. Soy wax candles also burn longer because the melt point temperature is lower. Our thick clear glass containers, beautifully crafted in Mexico, distribute and hold heat evenly. Our amber vintage apothecary style jars and lids are sourced from partners in China. Our all-cotton wicks come to us from Germany and are woven and salt-cured to curl, delivering the fragrance oils to the hottest part of the flame. Our wicks are anchored throughout the pouring process for a centered burn. You will instinctively recognize that our custom essential and fragrance oil accords are of the highest quality, to the credit of our award-winning globally based perfumers and suppliers. Expect the original MARKETCANDLE to burn cleanly, evenly, and completely.
Launched in 1997 in Los Angeles, California, our wholesale line found it's way from the West Coast to the East (via Z Gallerie, Bed Bath & Beyond, Sundance Catalog, and many wonderful independent shops). But the California phenomenon of farmers markets soon became for us a successful niche market, and in 2002 a single candle resulted - the original MARKETCANDLE. As we approached our 20th year, we achieved trademark registration for MARKETCANDLE. Farmers market customers continue to respond to the simple packaging, practical pricing, and quality performance. We hope the reach of this website will help to maintain the customer relationships that began in the white-tented stall of a California farmers market.
