For Leroy Singleton of LeAnn’s Handmade Cheesecakes, baking runs in the loved ones.

“I had my grandmother’s recipe and I explained we really should begin generating cheesecakes,” Singleton mentioned. “And so she reported, ’well, you could market these matters.’”

That’s when he started his tiny enterprise, whipping up delectable desserts within the Logan Street Market.

“Just great old handmade cheesecake, and we’re receiving good critiques on it,” Singleton stated.

On Saturday, Singleton’s sweets and many other retailers have been on show, owners opening up their arms to a neighborhood whose company they are relying on, specifically all through the pandemic.

Support that goes correct again into the community.
