Grocery shopping no longer has to be a mundane task to stock up on the essentials. With stores like Niemann Harvest Market on the rise, grocery shopping is now becoming a culinary shopping experience.

Amidst the rise of grocery delivery giants like Shipt, DoorDash, and Instacart during the pandemic, people are now craving curated in-person experiences. NHM represents this shift, offering not just groceries, but an entire journey through the world of food. 

“I tell people that we aren’t a grocery store. We are a food experience,” says Sean Olson, Carmel store director. “From the store aisles to the restaurant you are going to find something you love here.”


From the moment you step into Harvest Market, you know this is more than just a grocery store. The aroma of freshly brewed coffee beckons from the coffee shop, while the on-site restaurant, Farmhouse, tempts with scratch-made meals crafted from locally sourced ingredients. Cooking workshops in The Nook invite you to hone your culinary skills, and the full-service cocktail bar, featuring fine wine, artisan beverages, and a bottom-fill draft system, promises a refreshingly unique date night spot. 

While you are there you can stock up on all your local favorites, which can be found front and center above big brands (another nod to the changing grocery landscape). The delicatessen and bakery give either a custom charcuterie board for your next dinner party or a special cake as a treat for the kids. 


With over 1,000 varieties curated by a dedicated Cheese Monger, Niemann’s at Harvest Market is a haven for seasoned aficionados and curious rookies. Prepare to embark on a cheesy adventure – it’s worth the trip just for the education (and the chance to indulge!).

Niemann Harvest Market opened its doors for the first time in Carmel, Indiana, (the first in the state) a few weeks ago and looks to drive a unique food experience for years to come by adding more stores around the state.
