Ethnic Grocery Stores
What a terrific international community of people, coming together locally to share the best from distant lands! I was fortunate enough to be asked to sell my jewelry at their holiday bazaar. Beautiful things and a vibrant community from around the world, enriching Indianapolis life. Yay!
“Love the support”
I love everything about the IMC! They support local businesses by people who speak over 200 languages in the area. They help promote them and sort out logistics so that neighboring businesses can help each other out, pick up ingredient orders together, and promote each other too. It’s super special!
“Fantastic cultural diversity”
I came here for the International Coffee and Tea Festival and was surprised to see a large space for cultural items as well. The staff were so friendly and helpful. The space was clean and large. I was so impressed with the event and the gallery. I hope to come to more events in the future.
