About Us


Lynn and Dave Rodgers are originally from Western Pennsylvania near Pittsburgh.  Shocking, I know, we are not Italian!  But we were blessed to be raised where a person’s heritage is honored and preserved.  We had wonderful ethnic foods available to us within a short drive; Italian, German, Polish among others.  Lynn has sold Italian Specialty Products and built relationships with successful owners of Italian stores and distributorships.   Dave has had nearly 20 years’ experience in food service.  Moving to Indiana in 1999, we missed the Italian products most of all.  We have learned that the Italian population was fundamental in establishing Indianapolis and believe that an Italian market place is essential to preserving the traditions and culture.  Please make this market, your market so it will be R (our) Italian Market.
