Welcome to our Website! ~ Candy makers in New England since 1914 ~

You have reached the site of the fourth generation and original members of the Nelson's Candies family famous for selling our old fashioned fudge and candies at New England Fairs, hence the term "As Famous as the Fair Itself!"
Scroll down to see our photo galleries below.

Online ordering is available for in stock items. We will be shipping until mid to late May depending on warming temperatures. We will then place online ordering on pause for the summer season until mid to late October.

We ask that customers please call ahead between normal seasonal shop hour times, for special orders, and/or to be sure someone will be here to serve you. We will be keeping some items in stock for our customers throughout April until May 21st when we close for the season.

Don't miss the Annual Cornville 10 Mile Yard Sale weekend, May 19th - May 21st. Our shop will be stocked up and open all weekend!

Please check our site often as our seasons change and we add or remove specialty items according to each season. Check out our full line of products by clicking onto the menu at the top of the page.

Special notice to our customers, our shop and family are no longer affiliated with the Wilton N.H. location since it was sold in 2019, nor is Wilton associated with the Deerfield Fair or events in which our family is associated with.

Due to a high volume of online ordering everywhere, package delivery times may be delayed. All orders are always processed, packaged and mailed within a day or two of placement. Please feel free to give us a call with any questions or concerns you may have about shipping.

Most orders for pick up will be ready 1 to 24 hours after placement. Sometimes even sooner depending on size and availability. We ask that you call ahead to make sure your order is ready when you come. Large orders will likely take extra time so feel free to call to check availability and lead time. Please keep checking the site as our seasons change and new product is added to our Products page. If there is something you are interested in and don't see it listed here, chances are we will have it, so just give us a call at 207-474-8973 or email us through the Contact us page with any questions you may have. We also fill custom orders for wedding, baby, anniversary and more so please inquire if there is something we can do for your next event.
