FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) — Electric Works has added two more merchants for its food market.
Bragg-A-Lot Sweets & Drinks dessert shop and Local Apple Cart ice cream shop will locate in Union Street Market. Both shops are owned by women.
Bragg-A-Lot Sweets & Drinks, a family-owned business started by lifelong Fort Wayne resident DeZyre Bragg, features inventive cheesecakes, cookies, pies and a variety of other unique desserts. Bragg-A-Lot opened as a dessert shop and restaurant in 2020 but fell victim to the pandemic.
At Union Street Market, Bragg is teaming with her mother Shirl as head baker and significant other Terrance as head pastry chef to provide unique items like cheesecake-filled apples, homemade fudge and cocoa bombs.
“Our bakery quickly gained a large following and it was heart-breaking to close,” Bragg said. “We couldn’t be more excited to relaunch in Union Street Market and join so many other talented merchants.”
“To be a part of history, I would say, because this is history for Fort Wayne to see such a big project. So, we’re more than pleased to be a part of that great group,” said co-owner Terrance Bradford.
Local Apple Cart, which features homemade ice cream infused with locally grown fruits. Local Apple Cart will make the transition from food truck to full-time business within Union Street Market.
Owner/entrepreneur Rachel Nally followed her passion to found Local Apple Cart after nearly 20 years in customer service.
“I am beyond excited about being there and honestly one of the proudest moments to be part of that family,” Nally said.
Bragg-A-Lot Sweets & Drinks and Local Apple Cart will join at least six other eateries, bakeries and specialty shops at Union Street Market that were announced last month.
“We will be the biggest market in Northeast Indiana and Western Ohio,” said Spitzer. “So, we’re bringing a really unique place. We’ll be a really big market destination, and again, we’ll have a great range of local products, local producers from throughout the region. People can come shop for wonderful fresh products, and come and eat and drink at the market, too.”
Union Street Market is expected to open Fall 2022.
