It was a dream of Hancock County farmer Jonathan Lawler to open a grocery store selling his produce in an under-served neighborhood. That dream has become a reality with a new grocery near East 10th and North Rural streets in a building that used to house Pogue’s Run Grocer.
Lawler, of Brandywine Creek Farm, says a grand opening for the Healthy Harvest Market at Brookside is set for this week.
Lawler has donated more than 2 million pounds of produce in Central Indiana over the last three years. Tyson Foods recently named him one of its "Meals That Matter Heroes," giving him $100,000 continue his work.
