Pioneering Indianapolis chef Greg Hardesty dies

I first met Greg Hardesty in 2002 or 2003 when I cold called called H2O Sushi to sell him heirloom tomatoes from my hoop house. I continued to sell to Elements, his Farm to Table restaurant. He was kind and appreciative, and generous with providing me with other contacts of restaurants to sell to. I lost track of the Indianapolis restaurant scene, so I didn’t know he wasn’t well. His passing is very sad, but his impact has been felt all over Indianapolis and beyond. His life is proof that your every day decisions and choices can make a huge impact on the world around you. Thanks Greg.

Greg Hardesty put the local food scene on the map with his restaurants, and then trained others to carried the scene further.

She brings in friends and family to see us too. Thanks for helping us build community for the last 14 years Jan!

It was great to see so many people out in downtown last night. The businesses need to see you here like that more often now that things are coming back. If you value downtown, come out and support it and remember that we are short staffed and overworked. But with time and consistent business we should be able to have more help. Thank you again for your continued support and it was great to see everyone!

Employee Spotlight: Scott Jackson In this age of employee shortages, we’re fortunate to have Scott Jackson helping us with home grocery deliveries for the last two years! Maybe we’re a little partial to old school Gen X type work ethics, but Scott certainly personifies that sterotype. He’s a full time Music Teacher and Choir Director at Burris Laboratory School for all grades. He works very efficiently at home deliveries for us, and he is an uber talented musician performing in bands and regularly in gigs around Central Indiana, sometimes with his beautiful and talented wife Malissa Jackson. And you may have heard them around Muncie and in the Farm Stand Second Story performing as @Scott and Malissa! For those local fans of the jam band genre, you already know Scotty J as the former fantastic keyboard player and lead vocalist from the Grateful Dead cover band Hyryder, that plays all over the Midwest. We’re fortunate to have Scott on our team at the Farm Stand as well as having his talents here and his friendship! Scott when asked about working here said he really likes the owners (no really!), and he likes the helpful teamwork atmosphere. Thanks Scott!

Our Story

We are a very unusual success story for these tough economic times. While most independent stores had closed or had been forced out of business due to competition from big box stores during the recession, we are a kind of retro grocery store. Put simply, we buy organically produced food from farmers and sell it to local residents. Even though it’s not rocket science, it is labor intensive, and other grocery stores do not purchase like this anymore.

Making the operational shift in our purchasing procedures puts money back into local farms. This in turn helps build rural communities and provides fresh healthy food for inner city residents. The money pumped into our community helps create a diverse local economy. Because all of our producers use organic methods, the farms are all environmentally sustainable and are not putting chemicals into the soil, air, water, and food.

We are an organic grocery store, deli restaurant, and home delivery service with a full selection of staples and more. We have a small organic farm that supplies our grocery store and deli with some of our fresh produce. We buy everything we can find from local organic farms. The Farm Stand also offers Farm to Table interpretations of classic deli sandwiches, paninis, and salads along with some of our own creations, or you can build your own sandwich or panini for dine in or carryout.

We make our deli sandwich bread, our sauces, and two of our meats in house. We offer two delicious house made soups everyday. All sandwiches or paninis can be made into a gluten free salad or lettuce wrap. The Farm Stand offers organic beer, in bottles and on draft, and a variety of wines available to drink in house or carry out. ALL of our ingredients are organic with many sourced locally. The Farm Stand hosts many fun food related events throughout the year. Our grocery store is the heart of our operation and includes the best organic fruit and vegetable selection in Muncie, local pasture raised meats, cheese from 100% grass fed cows, eggs from chickens raised on pasture and fed non-gmo feed, dairy products from 100% grass fed cows, a nice bulk section of commonly used organic dry goods, and all of your organic grocery staples. We have a popular home delivery service that allows you to receive a weekly or biweekly delivery of groceries. We have automatic payments and FREE delivery and customization. The Downtown Farm Stand has been serving customers and providing an outlet for organic farmers since May of 2007.

This is the only place I've seen in 30 years that would make me even consider swinging by Muncie again.
After preparing breakfast this morning & pausing in gratitude for it, I realized that every ingredient came from The Downtown Farm Stand. The egg, avocado, Ezekiel bread, kale, mushrooms, tomatoes, onion, vegan mozzarella cheese & even the kraut. Thank you for providing the community with wholesome, organic local food!

I am really wanting to purchase local organic pork and chicken products. Do you supply these from local farmers? Mainly ground pork, pork steaks, chickens whole or breasts and thighs. If you do what are your prices. Thanks so much.
I have to recommend the coconut rolled dates. I wasn't sure would like it, except it did look yummy. Well, it is.
Thank you for the nourishing and delicious vegetable lentil soup. That and the toasted bread hit the spot. Curbside service couldn’t have been any easier. Thanks for all you do! Today I said a prayer for your business, as well as many other cherished local businesses.
Sara I tried your Sauerkraut that you make at the Store and it taste Great. It has Really helped with my Stomach pain.Dave was right, i just needed a Natural Probiotic from Fermented food. Thank you both.
do you sell vegan cream cheese???
Does the downtown farm stand sell or take orders for local raised turkeys for thanksgiving?
Had my first Veggie Reuben from The Downtown Farm Stand! Excellent, like all of the other sandwiches I've gotten there. A great lunch after a lovely ride on the Cardinal Greenway. Thanks, The Downtown Farm Stand!
Thank for a great lunch! Our little salad lover approves!!
