After living in Flower Mound’s Lakeside DFW area for a couple of weeks, Talitha Ledet noticed something was missing from the development: a grocery store. “I was sitting on my balcony one day and thought, ‘I just need a place here that I can walk to and get coffee, milk, eggs or something simple,’” she said. “I started walking around and talking to my neighbors and learned they felt the same way, too.” Ledet and her husband, Billy, launched The Market at Lakeside to meet those needs. “We carry a lot of the staple products,” she said. “We sell a lot of vegan and plant-based products as well.” Ledet said the specialty market not only attracts the Lakeside DFW residents but also those outside of the Dallas city limits who are looking for local brands. “We are able to bring big-city conveniences to a suburban, smaller storefront and make it easier for our customers so that they don’t have to drive to Dallas to enjoy some of their favorite local brands,” she said.
