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.

  1. why oh why does this state continue to elect these people....do you wonder how much was graft out of the 3.8 billion?

  2. i too think this is a great idea. I think the vision and need is there as well. But also agree with Wendy that there may be better location in our city to fulfill this vision and help grow the sports of hockey and figure skating in Indy. Also to help further develop other parts of the city that seem often forgotten. Any of the other 6 townships out side of the three northernmost could benefit greatly from a facility and a vision like this. For a vision that sounds philanthropic, the location is appears more about the money. Would really like to see it elsewhere, but still wish the development the best of luck, as we can always use more ice in the city. As for the Ice growth when they return, if schedules can be coordinated with the Fuel, what could be better than to have high level hockey available to go see every weekend of the season? Good luck with the development and the return of the Ice.

  3. How many parking spaces do they have at Ironworks? Will residents have reserved spaces or will they have to troll for a space among the people that are there at Ruth Chris & Sangiovese?

  4. You do not get speeding ticket first time you speed and this is not first time Mr.Page has speed. One act should not define a man and this one act won't. He got off with a slap on the wrist. I agree with judge no person was injured by his actions. The state was robbed of money by paying too much rent for a building and that money could have been used for social services. The Page family maybe "generous" with their money but for most part all of it is dirty money that he obtained for sources that are not on the upright. Page is the kind of lawyer that gives lawyers a bad name. He paid off this judge like he has many other tine and walked away. Does he still have his license. I believe so. Hire him to get you confiscated drug money back. He will. It will cost you.

  5. I remain amazed at the level of expertise of the average Internet Television Executive. Obviously they have all the answers and know the business inside and out.
