This week we have more exciting news as we welcome Inez Moore from ENEZO BAKERY KITCHEN as a new vendor. She will have Sweet Potato and Butternut Squash Cream Cheese slices. She will also bring butter pound cake, chocolate pound cake vanilla pound cake and pineapple upside down pound cake. Yummy, Yummy!
