Meet Edgewater Candles

July 2, 2018 | Comments 0


Ready to spend your Sunday with a day full of family activities, eclectic shopping and delicious cuisine from Eden? Head over to the West Lake Market to enjoy all that, and products from one of our favorite small businesses in Chicago, Edgewater Candles.


Founded in the Edgewater neighborhood in June 2016, Mark Towns and Stephen Pearlman started their business with sustainability in mind. Using soy in all their products and reusable mason jars, Edgewater Candles are especially unique for their uncommon scent palettes. With evocative scent combinations inspired by the seasons, botanicals, and earthy woods, the candles provide a “finishing touch” to any space. As well, special thought is placed on curating the furniture, art, and playlists in their space to create an atmosphere of warmth and comfort.



When not making candles or attending fests such as the West Lake Market, Mark and Stephen love to make electronic pop music. This summer they will be debuting lots of new fragrances and special edition candles and hope the people they meet at the West Lake Market will be as equally excited about their scents as they are!
