Goose-The Market

Today we finally got around to trying Goose the Market for lunch based on recommendations from several people, including my readers. Everyone else seems to know about it, but if you’re not in the know, it is located at 25th and Delaware. It is a great little neighborhood/gourmet market with lots of great looking meats and a nice stock of various other things such as wine, beer, cheese, gelato (an entire case of it just like in Italy) and baguettes that look pretty good. They also do a small lunch menu with several sandwiches and a soup of the day. You can check out what’s on the menu on their blog on the website listed below. The staff was also very helpful and friendly.

Since it was my first time, I tried “The Goose” sandwich—figured if it was named after the place, it must be good. Well, it was quite good. It was a warmed baguette with hunks of fresh mozzarella (very creamy), layers of thin proscuitto, extra virgin olive oil and shredded basil. Sounds simple, I know, but this is some of the best proscuitto I have had in Indy and the slightly warmed bread really added to the sandwich, particularly on a cold winter’s day.

Goose specializes in lots of dried cured meats and has several different sandwiches highlighting these yummy treats. If you’re in the neighborhood, stop in and give one a try. And while you’re there, check out the rest of the place, there are certainly lots of temptations!

  1. While The Goose is good...I happen to agree with Bon Appetit this time and concur that The Batali sandwich (the other staple) is perhaps the best sandwich I've ever had.

    You can't go wrong with anything they put up, and if they happen to have the Hot and Sour Duck Soup on the board on a cold winter's day it's highly recommended as well!

  2. I love Goose, this place is a treasure. If you like to cook, you have to go here. I don't know how they do it, but they've got everything you could possibly need. For example - the only place in town I've found where you can find the bones you need for beef stock or veal stock, or chicken carcasses for stock. And they've got hanger steaks - nobody carries hanger steaks, but here they are. I could go on and on, this place rocks!
