Indianapolis, IN Edition: Indianapolis City Market

Indianapolis MarketEvery time I get the opportunity to, I visit a city's central market. It's always fun to see what different places have.

Indianapolis MarketAnd, I love community gathering spaces. I think these are crucial to cities and towns, and I feel like it's these places where you can get a real pulse for the community.

The Indianapolis City Market feeds the community and our guests by offering distinct foods, products and services in an environment that preserves and perpetuates Central Indiana's agricultural, architectural and cultural history.

Reminiscent of your favorite neighborhood pub, Tomlinson Tap Room offers an intimate atmosphere as comfortable as your favorite chair—a perfect respite after a long day at work or as a weekend spot to gather with friends. From the moment you step inside Tomlinson, it's clear this is no ordinary pub. For starters, it features only tapped Indiana craft beer by the pint or the growler fill!
