Janina Turziak can't wait to sell her luxurious European-style treats in Central Market.
The owner of Janina's Fine Desserts at 176 Leader Heights Road in York Township will open a stand at the downtown market on April 15.
"We're going to do really nice things," she said.
At the market she will sell breakfast pastries, lunch pastries, small cakes, several breads and more. And some of the treats will be made entirely with organic ingredients.
Selling in Central Market is a chance to grow her business, Turziak said.
"People there will find out we exist. There are people who go to the market who don't get out elsewhere. It's great advertising," she said.
Janina's Fine Desserts is one of many vendors set to open or expand in Central Market this spring, according to Cindy Steele, chief operating officer at the market.
