Yogurt and Sweet Shop Fills Last Open Spot on Market Square
Lake Forest entrepreneur plans to open shop to sell frozen yogurt, cup cakes and more in the former toy store space.
A shop selling frozen yogurt and fresh baked cup cakes will open by June 1 in Lake Forest filling the last vacant space on Market Square, according, Deborah McDowell, a representative of the property owner, Broadacre Management.
The business is owned by Lake Forest resident Laura Fellows. McDowell told Patch Tueday the lease had been signed but there is no official name yet. McDowell explained the shop must be refitted from the toy store it once was to what it will be.

For many years, the space in the northeast section of Market Square was a toy store with electric trains circling the windows. It will remain a family friendly place, according to McDowell.
“The frozen yogurt will be high end,” McDowell said. “The cup cakes will be made on site. There will be seating. This is a great fit for Market Square.”
