Among the new vendors on board is Cindy Hawkins, owner of Circle City Sweets. Hawkins, whose stand sells fresh baked goods, opened last month, undaunted by the market's recent history.

Hawkins started Circle City Sweets 3-1/2 years ago. For most of that time, she shared space in a catering kitchen, slowly building up a clientele of restaurants, weddings, farmers' markets and wholesale customers. A graduate of French pastry school in Chicago, she initially worked other jobs on the side to support herself.
Now, Circle City Sweets is her full-time gig, and the 700 square feet of space she's renting in the market's southwest corner allows her to sell Circle City Sweets' cookies, tarts, pastries and tiramisu to individual customers. She invested $15,000 of her own money to expand the business. Her mom and a friend are her only employees.
So far, Hawkins said, some days have been great, while others were slow. There's a noticeable rise in the market's foot traffic on Wednesdays, connected to the popular farmer's market. But Thursdays see an inevitable lull.
Hawkins isn't waiting for the City Market's just-announced $4 million renovation to produce customers. She's actively marketing Circle City Sweets via Facebook, an e-mail distribution list and word of mouth, emphasizing the taste of her desserts, which she gets up at 4:30 every morning to bake from scratch.
"Part of the reason I wasn't leery about coming here, we do a lot of marketing on our own," she said. "Others have been scared to do that in the past, or just didn't do that."
She has high hopes that the City Market has turned the corner and will soon attract more small businesses like Circle City Sweets. Her husband, for example, is exploring opening a fresh soup stand there.

A small but special example: how I met Cindy Hawkins from Circle City Sweets... ( read the whole article)

And pastry chef Cindy Hawkins's apple tarte tatin, buttery raspberry bars, and decadent banana tart end the meal on a high note. Inside tip: Split a first course and save room for dessert.
...
And (former Oakleys Bistro) pastry chef Cindy Hawkins' dessert menu is truly a blessing. Please see that she has plenty of sweet, dense bananas to save her banana tart from mediocrity.
...
The desserts were tasty managed by pastry chef Cindy Hawkins (who some regulars will remember from Oakleys Bistro years ago.) My favorite of the night? The hazelnut chocolate mousse torte cake. (Yum!) The people I was with had already tried the banana tart which may well be this restaurant's signature dessert. We also tried a tasty shortbread with raspberry filling and sabayon.
