HACKMAN FAMILY FARM MARKET
The Hackman Family Farm Market opened its doors in 2012 as a retail business to serve up fresh quality produce for our customers. We are a family farm operation. Megan, Jacquelyn, Allison, and Victor are building and expanding on the 30 years of farming expertise of their parents, Tom and Ruth.
We offer a wide array of the freshest and ripest produce in the area. Our produce is picked daily as it ripens on the vine, not days ahead of its time. All items are available in season and are of the highest quality.
Our operation follows good agriculture practices (GAP). Our staff is educated on proper handling of produce. We strive to reduce our foot print on the land by using best management practices (BMP) for irrigation, pest and nutrient management, crop rotation, and cover crops. Not only do we want to provide quality produce, we want to be good stewards of the land.
We look forward to seeing our neighbors and meet new customers every day. Customer service and customer satisfaction with our produce is our primary goal. If you are in the neighborhood, come check us out.

Slow cured and smoked meats, salumi, and sausages Handmade in Indianapolis since 2011.
Indianapolis natives and high school sweethearts Chris and Mollie Eley opened their neighborhood butcher shop and specialty food market in 2007.
Based on the relationships with farmers and the recipes that Chris developed behind the butcher counter, this family business grew into Smoking Goose in 2011.
Using old world craft and new world flavors, Smoking Goose makes over 40 varieties of slow cured and smoked meats, salumi, and sausages in small batches.
All Smoking Goose recipes begin on the farm. Working with farmers in Indiana and neighboring states who raise their animals as nature intended, Chris and the Smoking Goose gang still seam butcher by hand and cure without compound nitrates.
Producing this way takes more time, more effort, and more patience. but Chris' and Mollie's unwavering commitment to quality, flavor, and humane, sustainable farm partners has earned Smoking Goose nods from Food & Wine, Bon Appetit, New York Times, james beard foundation, Good Food Awards, and more.

RUMPY'S PEPPER SPREADS
Here at Rumpy's we started small, sharing with friends and family the great tasting Pepper Spreads. The feedback and demands for more made us realize this stuff is really good. So we created a brand and went to market and the rest is history.
Everyone loves party snacks and Rumph's General Store offers the best. It's not a salsa or a jelly or even a relish. It is .....well.... Rumpy's World Famous Pepper Spread. It's just good! It is a parade of flavor from the initial sweet-pickling flavor to the rolling influx of pepper.
They go great with cheese and crackers, summer sausage, wings, cream cheese dip. Mix in burgers or meatloaf. Glaze on ham, pork or fish. Add in salads or chili and much more. So, on your next outing, be the talk of the town sharing some of Rumpy's World Famous Pepper Spread. Pick Sweet or Zesty or if you are into the spicier side of life, go for the Hot! We know you will enjoy our great tasting spreads, and please share any new recipes with us so we can pass them along!
Oak-hickory forests roll down into rich riverbottom land and wetlands. Pileated woodpeckers, coyotes, great blue herons, crawdads, and a host of other wildlife call this place home, including the Otte family. Liz's family has stewarded these 250 acres for over forty years. Lloyd and Carol Otte (Liz's parents) raised wheat, alfalfa, corn, beans, and beef cattle here in the 1970's and 80's. More recently, they restored about thirty acres of wetlands through NRCS's Wetlands Reserve Program. They continue to manage the forests for wildlife habitat and a bit of sustainable timber and firewood. For the last thirty years, our neighbors, the Schepmans, have kept this land in production.
Starting our farm on Liz's family farm feels like a privilege and a responsibility. We’re creating a small family farm, and we work to farm sustainably. For us, that means that: We raise animals on pasture, with respect and care. We’re committed to selling meat locally and feeding our neighbors and friends. We’re trying to be good stewards of the forests, wetlands, and fields on our farm.
JUST POP IN!
It all started when...
Dynamic twin sisters, Mandy and Carly created Just Pop In! in 2003. Since then, the girls have set their intention to honor their declaration, “Celebrate Happiness”™. Inspiration stemmed from essential joy and particularly anticipated evenings spent popping with their Grandfather.
In 2008, Just Pop In! earned the flagship space of terminal B in the new Indianapolis International Airport. It continues to be one of the only independent locally-owned & operated retail environments. That same year, JPI was voted, “Best New Retail Concept” in all of North America by Airports Council International.
Today, their newly opened California modern farmhouse in Broad Ripple village hosts their fresh pops, beer, wine, bubbles & sherry service, including small plates. An upper room, including balcony offers a beautiful event space. Come enjoy the fireplace on the wrap-around porch and stunning, open & plush interior!
SWEET D'S BBQ
In the early 80’s our mother, Dee Dee Gresham, would make her famous barbq sauce for the Gresham Family on special occasions.
Beginning in the late 80’s, our father, Steve Gresham, embarked on a new business venture in food concessions at outdoor festivals. Naturally, we started selling barbq with Dee Dee’s famous sauce alongside Miss Piggy’s barbq. The number of people asking where they could buy our sauce was overwhelming.
In order to keep up with the growing demand, we continued making our sauce on the family stove, but continued to use larger and larger pots and bottling it in mason jars. Our customers demand for the sauce became so high that we outgrew the family kitchen. As the demand for our sauce grew, our family then purchased a 50 gallon steam kettle.
Sadly, on August 10th, 1996, Dee Dee passed away. Our father Steve and brothers Bryan and Doug Gresham changed the name of the sauce from Miss Piggy’s to Sweet D’s in our honor of our beloved mother Dee Dee.
In 2001 Gresham Foods Inc. was born. Today, we continue to provide our mother’s recipe for our loyal customers. Now we would like to share our family’s beloved barbq sauce with your family.
A&S started out with one thing in mind...better jerky. As a life-long jerky lover I had grown tired of the one-dimensional taste that has dominated the jerky industry for years. After culinary school I decided to do something about it.
Here at A&S, we start with choice top round. A lean, flavorful cut usually reserved for roast or steaks, sliced to the perfect thickness against the grain for tenderness. Next, the marinated strips go for a spin in the vacuum tumbler where the fibers are stretched, pulling the marinade deep into the meat. The state-of-the-art drying process transforms the marinated strips into succulent beef jerky that's right in the sweet spot between tough and tender.
We don't skip steps. We don't take shortcuts. You deserve the absolute best jerky experience. That is what we always strive to deliver.

COFFEE HOUSE FIVE
On the outside we might look like every other coffeehouse; boasting about our house-roasted Fair-Trade coffee alongside our house-baked pastries on Instagram all amongst the backdrop of our industrial chic interior décor. But in reality, coffee is only part of our passion. What we genuinely care about are people.
We are working our hardest not just to provide you with the best cup of coffee you've ever had, but to strengthen our community while we’re at it. Because at the end of the day, coffee gets you through a lot of things, but it’s no substitute for the amazing people who live and work all around you.
Agree with any of this? Support us by making a donation. Share it with someone. Know someone who needs help? Send them our way. Feeling the need for a caffeine fix? Join us for a cup to strengthen our community.
After living in the Indianapolis area for over 30 years we have seen progress and positive moments, but we have also seen sadness and decay and known first hand so many hurting people and families. Take a second to think. Do you know someone who has been divorced? Do you know someone who has struggled with addiction?
Odds are you said yes to at least one of those questions if not both and that breaks our heart. And that’s why we do what we do.
Coffeehouse Five exists to serve the community. We call ourselves a For-Benefit because as a registered nonprofit we don’t reap the benefits of our profit, our community does. Every single item sold at Coffeehouse Five fuels our ability to provide marriage and addictions counseling completely free of charge.
We also realize we are stronger in community than on our own, so the money doesn’t stop there. We also support other local non-profit organizations each month to help them love and serve our community in ways we can’t.
