Anna’s take: Goose the Market is an adorable gourmet market and butcher shop in downtown Indianapolis. It serves sandwiches and charcuterie boards to order, and most of the sandwiches change daily.

My favorite item was The Tour, a charcuterie board featuring Smoking Goose meats and local cheeses for $12 per person. The board has Prosciutto di Parma, Cahills Irish Porter cheese, Smoking Goose pig and fig terrine, dates, Gordal olives, Macona almonds, Cambozola cheese, Smoking Goose Toscano and Everton cheese. It features a quality of meat and cheeses that I haven’t found in other local charcuterie boards, and it was a beautiful display.

I also tried a few sandwiches for $8.95 each. The Batali and the Goose are menu staples. The Batali features Smoking Goose Coppa, Smoking Goose Soppressata, Smoking Goose Capacolla, provolone, romaine, marinated onions, giardiniera, mayo and tomato preserves in a slightly spicy, totally delicious sandwich. The Goose has Smoking Goose Prosciutto di Parma, creamy fresh mozzarella, basil, black pepper and olive oil. You can’t go wrong with either, but if you’re more of a spice fan, opt for the Batali.

You won’t regret stepping into this cozy shop during your lunch break or on a date downtown.
