Hamilton Town Center roundup: foodie draws and kids' clothes

German oil-and-vinegar purveyor Vom Fass plans a late-summer opening for its first Indiana store at Hamilton Town Center.

Founded in 1994, Vom Fass (German for “from the cask”) has about 275 locations, mostly in Europe. Its website lists only eight U.S. stores.

Its retail niche: cask-aged fruit vinegars and specialty oils, and assorted spices, all available for sampling and bottled to order. Recycling is encouraged.

“You can taste everything, smell everything,” said local franchisee Sundaresh Ramanathan, a 43-year-old IT manager who lives in Fishers. “It’s a phenomenal experience.”

The Noblesville location—on Harrell Parkway between Chico’s and Aveda—will offer as many as 60 oils, 30 vinegars and 60 spices, he said, appealing to foodies and health-conscious cooks alike.

Some Vom Fass franchises also sell wine and spirits, but Ramanathan said he didn’t want to navigate Indiana’s liquor laws.

He expects remodeling to begin soon so the 924-square-foot store can open by early September, in time for the holiday shopping season.

Also in the works for Hamilton Town Center:

Crazy 8, the kids' clothing retailer owned by San Francisco-based Gymboree Corp., is planning a 3,000-square-foot Town Center Boulevard store, its third in central Indiana. It also has locations at Castleton Square and Clay Terrace.

— Colorado-based Tucanos Brazilian Grill is planning an 8,800-square-foot restaurant at 13225 Levinson Lane, near Noodles & Co. The eatery, where skewered meat and vegetables are delivered to diners, has eight other locations.

— A Yats franchise is planned for 1,400 square feet of space on Town Center Boulevard near Campus Way. It will serve the Cajun-Creole cuisine that draws diners to the founders’ original location in Indianapolis.

    Great to see some new vendors moving into Hamilton Town Center. The space next to Noodles has been empty far too long. I wish they would develop lots directly on Campus Parkway - they could use the existing parking for the shopping center as it's never close to full and it would infill existing developed land.

  4. The question is, where could they build a new stadium? It seems in the past year, all the prime spots have been spoken for with potential projects. Maybe in the industrial wasteland area a block past Lucas Oil? I think it needs to be close to the core, if a new stadium is built.

  5. Aldi is generally a great shopping experience. Still, I'm sure YOU wouldn't want to shop there, which I consider a positive.
