BAKERY BREADS AT THE MARKET:
Hayley McGinley had a gluten sensitivity, but she LOVED rustic, nutrient dense bread with texture, chew, and rich flavor. She noted that Indianapolis didn’t have an artisan gluten-free bakery, so she decided to fill that need. She set up in a small commercial kitchen, and since Native Bread launched in 2016, it has continued to expand and grow and bring delicious gluten-free breads to the Market.
Bread & Breakfast
Jason Michael Thomas has always had a passion for good food. As a supporter of the sustainable food movement and regenerative agriculture, he sources and forages anything he doesn’t already grow. He is particularly known for his high-hydration long-fermentation sourdough breads, but also makes a great breakfast offering for the market and brings other unique foods and foodie items to his customers.
Dedication to Quality
Cindy Hawkins loves to talk about food. Cindy is the owner and force behind Circle City Sweets, a boulangerie/patisserie. She is not only a baker and pastry chef, but also a teacher (her macaron classes are famous!), and a food competitor (in the World Food Championships with a team of 9 local chefs). She and her staff are dedicated to creating a high-quality hand-made product.
Based in downtown Indianapolis, Amelia’s Bakery is on a mission to bring high-quality, old-world bread to the people. At 4 a.m., the bakers are busy preparing hundreds of fresh loaves. The dough ferments longer and at cooler temperatures than commercially yeasted bread, yielding deeper flavor and superior texture. It’s hearth-baked until it reaches perfect caramelization and then comes fresh to the Market.
