Jun 04, 2015 05:42PM

It isn’t always easy finding healthy food amidst the chain restaurant highways in the suburbs despite the fact that more and more people are searching for natural items that are safe for food intolerances. Driving into the city isn’t always an option for a fast, healthy meal close to home. To help, we’ll shine a light on various communities in the Indy metro area by highlighting establishments that are supporting the growing population of food-sensitive and health-minded individuals.

Following up on last month’s spotlight on downtown Fishers is a look at Westfield. Though it may be relatively small, it boasts some big personalities when it comes to locally owned, healthy food options.

The Local Eatery & Pub is a farm-to-table restaurant with the mission of being socially and environmentally responsible, while also serving healthy and fresh foods that are grown, raised and produced by local artisans. Their menu focuses on family options and also offers interesting items for more adventurous diners. Opened in February of 2011, they feature hand-crafted, freshly made artisan foods, locally crafted ales and cocktails, all-natural and organic ingredients when available, and have gluten-free menu options.

Rail Epicurean Market is located in a rustic red barn in historic downtown Westfield. The owners specialize in utilizing local ingredients in their homemade pastries, sandwiches, coffee, tea, grocery items, signature cocktails, beer and wine, and what’s served at special events. Part restaurant, part market, with a seasonally updated menu and local artisanal suppliers, it’s worth the drive to discover.

The Local Eatery & Pub is located at 14655 Gray Rd., Westfield. For more information or to make reservations, call 317-218-3786 or visit
