Goose The Market…For Foodies!


Ashley, our youngest daughter (birthday girl) said, “Mom, I want you to take a walk with me, I have something special to show you!” She had a little smirk on her face, so I knew I was going to like this. I immediately went and grabbed the camera and off we went.

Around the corner, a few blocks away, we came upon this store. Goose the Market! She says, “We are here.” It is in the heart of Fall Creek Place, your neighborhood specialty food & wine market in downtown Indianapolis. Where you will find Chris, Mollie, and their son Waylon reside above the shop right on the corner of 25th and Delaware. I found out later, Ashley and Luke have become very close to the owners and have a great rapport with them. Reminded me of Cheers….where everybody knows your name☺

What does this adorable quaint market carry? Delicatessen and Salumeria, Cheese, Fresh Meats, Meaty Wines and Brave Beers, Produce, Coffee, Breads and the Yummo Gelato!


You smell the aroma of the fresh bread throughout the air as soon as you walk in!

FOODIES: Attention…I have to give you this incredible link to the recipe page on their website.

They are sharing the “GOOSE RECIPES”…oh be still my heart. Very unique and perfect for entertaining…take a look.

Here are a few of the recipes:

Sweet Cream Bourbon Pie with Pecan Crust and Macerated Stone Fruit

Cauliflower Gratin with Black Truffles

Roast Turkey and Porchini Mushroom Risotto


The Goose’s Enoteca located in the downstairs cellar, is a casual place to drink wine.

Order a glass or quartino from the rotating menu of unassuming and enticing wines or choose your own bottle from the cellar shelves.

The cooler is stocked with a changing selection of craft beers, and a rotating menu of small plates–like crudo, rillettes, and cheese & charcuterie boards–will calm those hunger pangs between sips.

Grab a seat at the communal tables or pull up a stool at the bar while the vinyl tunes spin off their lovingly restored turntable.

We ordered specialty sandwiches from their deli and just enjoyed the quaint atmosphere and shared some laughs.


Of course, a walk back home just wouldn’t do without pulling out the camera to snap off a couple more delightful shots. The neighborhood is just as cute on the outside as the market was on the inside.


Most of us would adore a white picket fence, but did you see the curves on this cute structure? Sigh…I don’t know how I am going to fit this in my suitcase for the return trip home LOL!

Tip of the Day for Bloggers/Photographers:

Do you have days when you could use a little incentive to blog and post your images?

Gazing at a happy moment from the past can improve your present outlook.

If you reflect on good memories, like an amazing vacation with family or friends, you might actually be able to experience the same sensation you felt in that moment!

Surrounding yourself with pictures of your loved ones can remind you of this bond and make you feel more upbeat and optimistic about the future.

I can’t tell you, how many times I will go back and look at older posts and the smile it brings on my face, recalling the great times we had.

So keep on blogging…so you will have many memories for the future.

  3. These are some of my favorite of your photos! Awesome!! I jotted down the names of the food photography books you posted a few weeks back, but haven’t checked them out yet. This post will help me get motivated

  4. What a wonderful little shop.. Looks like a place I would love to hang out in. I had to smile at the picked fence comment. I am thinking a picked fence would look fabulous around my trailer. Just packing it up every time we moved might be a pain.

    Hope you are enjoying your week my friend.


  5. I love places like this where everything is simple, but beautiful. Plus, I love good food and wine. Looks like a great location for an intimate gathering with friends.

  6. What a beautiful post, and such good advice. When I saw the words Fall Creek, it brought back memories. My great-grandparent’s home was on Fall Creek. It scared me to death with Grandpa backing out of the garage into the alley. I always stayed out of the car until I made sure it wasn’t going to go into the river! 🙂 I have an award for you on my site. Please accept it as a token of my appreciation for being my blogging friend. 🙂 Marsha ☺

  7. My dear Laurie, I am so ashamed of myself! You come visit me so often and I am sooo behind in the reading of my favorite blogs… I absolutely love your blog. Such talent, such colors… Your personality shines through your art! I might add a “greatest hit” page to my blog as well. I think it’s a great idea! Love, love your work!!

    • Dear Stephen, you owe me NO apology in the least. It is always a delight whenever you can make it here on this blog. I know how hard it is to be at all the favorite blogs…so much fun so little time as they say. As for the greatest hits page…I think you will enjoy having one on French Heaven….I receive hits on it every single day. Blessings to you!

  8. I can see you truly enjoyed it Laurie! That bread looks so delicious! Thanks so much for sharing hon. 😀 *hugs*

  9. Hi Laurie…Oh don’t you just love to find a great market…where everyone knows your name? I have one here in my hometowne…it is The Blue Goose. It must be something about those geese…they really know how to shop~ giggle. Enjoy your visit!

  10. Oooh, the breads… What a delicious place. I love to eat at the market place 🙂
    Thank you for the tip of the day! Happy Wednesday!

  11. “Gazing at a happy moment from the past can improve your present outlook.” I soooo agree with this. Some days it’s this very thing that prevents a full-fledged “funk.”

  12. Since i’m a vegetarian, the cauliflower gratin and black truffles–yummy. On Sunday at our Farmer’s Market, I’ll scoop up some cauliflower and give it a try. It makes me smile that you are having so many precious experiences with your family.

  13. Markets are the great places in any city. For food lovers it is the must visit place. Your pictures and story are the witnesses of that. Thank you for sharing.

Please share your thoughts...and thank you for the love!
