Locally Grown Gardens is a year-round farmers’ market chef-owned and operated by Ronald Harris in South Broad Ripple, Indianapolis. The market operates from a repurposed repair shop offering seasonal produce, vegetable and herb plants, flowers/perennials, Christmas trees, firewood, lanterns, fresh baked pies, breads, rolls, crisps, fresh brewed Italian coffee, and specialty baking and cooking ingredients. Salmon and pulled pork are on the daily menu.

Prior to opening Locally Grown Gardens, Harris was the Corporate Chef for MCL Restaurant and Bakery (27 locations) for 14 years, and was a chef in New York City for over 14 years.

Customers can enjoy lunch or dinner at a massive wood table adjacent to the wall of cookbooks and join him for a discussion on recipes or tips on preparing for dinner parties. Warmer months lead to outdoor eating on picnic tables. Harris works directly with local Indiana and Midwest farmers as well as other local suppliers.
