City Market is an building housing many food stands. There is nothing called "City Market Deli". City Market itself should be an attraction. Sorry to reach out this way - just trying to make TA Indy as accurate as possible.

Our church group organized a narrated walking tour of the basement underneath the City Market . . . known as the "Catacombs." But, after comparing the real Catacombs in Rome, Italy to these, there simply is NO comparison. This experience can best be described as a short history lesson about the basement under a very old 19th-century building. The barrel-vaulted... More

WE went there around 9:00 AM on a Wed. There were on two or three of the shops open. The open air market is only on weekends as well as the tours of the catacombs. We would suggest only a weekend trip. There is loads of construction going on in the area and plenty of police writing parking tickets in... More

I was excited to visit the City Market after looking online and seeing all the vendors they had to offer. Unfortunately once we got there several of them were closed the day we were there. And of course they were the ones I would have liked to try- jumbo shrimp, corned beef, other specialty sandwiches. It was really disappointing because... More

Conveniently located across the street from the Indianapolis City County Building, the Market is a great place to grab a bite to eat during your lunch hour and do some people watching. Great historic building with great choices in various cuisines. Great seating areas inside and outside.

This is basically a small food hall. Was expecting farmers produce, mixed with hand made goods and jewelry, some places to eat. Spend a couple of hours browsing. Good for lunch. Little surprised at how much publicity in the literature for such a small place. The most interesting entertainment was provided by a local crazy person harassing people.

Good place to grab a deli sandwich or a hamburger. Quick, affordable, and a decent place to stop for lunch. There are also many other options available during lunch hours if you're not craving a sandwich.

Not everything was open when I was there on a Saturday in mid-April. Still had two or three lunch choices. Had crepes from 3 Days in Paris, bought some pretzels from another stand, and cookies from a place that was called "Just Cookies", I think. Also bought a gift for the in-laws of crockpot pea soup mix, and blueberry oatmeal... More
