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.
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.
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.
