Irvington Gets Three New Farm Fresh Food Stops
Feb 02, 2016 06:55AM
More exciting news for the growing Eastside of Indianapolis: Chris Baggott, co-founder of ExactTarget, has bought a three-unit building in the 100 block of South Audubon Road in Irvington to open three new food entities, according to The Indianapolis Star.
The first is a small-scale grocery slated to open in February, featuring local foods and household products.
Another unit is dedicated to a second location of the successful Greenfield drive-in, The Mug, to feature comfort favorites like pork tenderloin sandwiches, cheeseburgers, hot dogs and sloppy joes, produced with local produce and grass-fed, pastured meats. The new location will not have a drive-in car service, but there’ll be outdoor seating.
The third unit will be fashioned into an intimate 21-and-older gastropub called Griggsby’s Station, named after a wistful poem by Hoosier poet James Whitcomb Riley, and expected to open at summer’s end.
Meats for all three will come from Baggott’s Tyner Pond Farm, in Greenfield, home to grass-fed, pasture-raised animals.
