The owners of The Meat Shop of Indianapolis go to great lengths to ensure that their wares are fit for a king's grill, a campsite?s frying pan, or a family?s crockpot. Instead of leaving the quality of their meat to chance, they embark on personal inspections of their meat suppliers and staff their counters with butchers who have more than 25 years of cleaver-wielding experience. As noted in the Indianapolis Star, they don't just hawk traditional steaks, chops, chicken, and cold cuts, expanding to include exotic meats including bison, rabbit, goat, and leprechaun.

The Three Faces of Goose the Market Fresh Indiana Meats Real meat has a story. This is one of the founding principles at Goose the Market, where the meat does, in fact, have a tale to tell, albeit a short one without many characters. That’s because Goose works directly with Indiana farmers, who slaughter their all-natural livestock mere hours or days before delivering its meat to the market. As a result, the shop’s customers always know where their meat comes from and how it was raised. Award-Winning Sandwiches The neighborhood market of bygone eras was always the place to go if you wanted a good sandwich. Goose has picked up that torch with its own roster of sandwiches—Bon Appetit magazine even placed it on its list of Top 10 Sandwich Shops in the country in 2008. The “standout sandwich” then, and now, is the Batali, named after Armandino Batali, a famous salumi maker. This Italian creation features spicy coppa, soppressata, capicola, tomato preserves, and hot giardiniera for an extra kick. Italian Enoteca The enoteca—an Italian word for "wine repository"—at Goose resides in the basement. Here, a rotating menu of wines shares space with a wide selection of craft beers. In keeping with the market's passion for all things local, the enoteca houses communal tables for neighbors to meet up over small plates of artisanal cheese or charcuterie.

At Whole Foods Market, shoppers will find a variety of organic, gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian and non-GMO products. Located in the Nora Plaza shopping center near North Central High School, this popular branch of the national chain has all of the usual throwback grocery store appeal, thanks to wooden shelves that line each aisle and an open-air ceiling that allows for exposed piping and duct work. While striving to support local commerce, many products there are purchased from in-state and regional providers. The meat and seafood area at Whole Foods Market features vegetarian-fed, hormone-free items and sustainability fished and farmed seafood, while the rest of the tall, warm, inviting space is taken up by prepackaged goods that range from entirely healthful to devilishly delicious. Bulk stations for nuts, grains and dried fruits add to the DIY food approach.
