Leo’s Market & Eatery to open on southside in April

A Greenfield-based convenience market and eatery will open a southside location in April.

Leo’s Market & Eatery, a convenience market, fueling and chef-inspired eatery, will be opening a fourth location at the corner of Emerson and Edgewood Avenues on Indianapolis’s southside in early April. The business, which began in 2019, currently has stores in Greenfield, Noblesville and McCordsville, according to a news release from the eatery.

Leo’s features a convenience store and a local grocery store with an always-fresh eatery. Customers can also fuel-up on gasoline, company officials said in the news release.

Company officials say they aim to provide convenience for families trying to make healthy choices with limited time. The focus of the store and its employees is to help each customer “conquer their day.” The 7,500 square-foot store gives “ample room” for the market to showcase fresh produce, breads, cheeses, a wide selection of beverages and fresh-ground coffee.

Inside the eatery, a “Leo’s Chef” offers freshly prepared bakery items, including Leo’s signature kolaches — a type of pastry stuffed or topped with sweet or savory filling. The chef also offers highly customizable salad, pasta and potato bowls, and popular house-made soups, company officials said.

“Leo’s is not your typical ‘convenience store,’” said Stephanie White-Longworth, president of Leo’s. “We pride ourselves on providing chef-inspired meals and made-to-order salads and pastas at our eatery with that quick and convenient factor still there; even offering a drive-thru option for those on the go where not only can you get made-to-order food, but you can also pick up market items like milk, fresh produce, or a bouquet of flowers without having to get out of your car.”

The eatery also offers special deals via its loyalty rewards program and has a goal to give back to the community, officials said.
