About BIG MOUTH BISCUITS (as told by Travis):
I moved to Indy from Dallas Texas and was looking for a cool biscuit sandwich place to get acquainted with. Didn’t find one so I decided to start one of my own. We launched 28 days later on April Fools Day thanks to Indy’s Kitchen, a shared kitchen incubator. I built the menu based off of my favorites from the many places I have traveled and took inspiration from family and friends to create the perfect breakfast sandwich joint. I met Clint Rollins on a separate business venture, and I instantly knew I needed him to be my Mayor of Biscuit Town. He is in charge of customer service and meeting all the great folks of Big Mouth Biscuits, aka Biscuit Town.
Big Mouth Biscuits serves Breakfast and lunch hours Monday thru Thursday 9am -12 pm and Fri, Sat, Sun – 7am to 2:30pm. We bake our biscuits fresh every few hours!
Come check us out at the intersection of 25th and Central and get a picture with the Mayor of Biscuit Town. New location soon at City Market.

Fresh food is now more accessible in one Indianapolis food desert thanks to the mobile farm stand, The Elephant Gardens. Joining us today to share more about this new community staple was Vivian Muhammad, co-owner and garden manager of The Elephant Gardens, LLC and Joyce Randolph, co-owner and secretary of The Elephant Gardens, LLC.
They provide locally and organically grown, nutrient-dense vegetables, herbs, and some fruit to our community.
The three-generation family who runs the farmstand has lived in this community in the same home since 1970. Being vegetarians, they wanted to grow their own food so we started a garden in our backyard. They acquired two quarter-acre lots very near their home in 2013 and 2014, and not long after the Double 8 stores all closed in one day. They then saw the need to step up their efforts to provide their community with fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs.
Hours: Monday and Friday 3-7 p.m., Wednesday 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.
Address: 3348 N. Sherman Dr. Indianapolis, IN 46218

Ed Carpenter crashed Team Penske’s front-row party Sunday.
The owner-driver hopes it leads to an even bigger celebration next week at his home track.
Carpenter blew past three Penske drivers on the second-to-last run in qualifying, claiming his third Indianapolis 500 pole with a four-lap average of 229.618 mph. Simon Pagenaud was second at 228.761. Now, he’s looking for the one thing that has eluded him: A trip to victory lane at the track run by his stepfather’s family.
“How about Ed? That’s awesome. He deserves it,” Danica Patrick said after watching her teammate’s run.
Carpenter might not have been the biggest name or the best story around Indianapolis Motor Speedway this weekend.
Patrick qualified seventh for her first IndyCar start since 2011 and will start on the inside of Row 3 for the last start of her career with a 228.090. Three-time Indianapolis 500 winner Helio Castroneves will chase a record-tying victory from the middle of Row 3 after going 227.859 on the final run of the day.
And it looked for a while like Roger Penske’s powerhouse team would sweep the front row with Simon Pagenaud, Will Power and Josef Newgarden – all series champions – in the top three spots.
Carpenter was the only driver to top 230 on a lap and the only one to top 229 on all four.
“Second place is first loser, I guess,” Pagenaud joked after holding the top starting spot for just a few minutes.
The drama that evoked so much intrigue Saturday when James Hinchcliffe and Pippa Mann were left out of next Sunday’s 33-car field was missing on the final qualifying day. There was no immediate word on whether either could find a ride for the race after IndyCar president of competition and operations Jay Frye ruled out expanding the field.
On Sunday, qualifying went pretty much according to script – until Castroneves came up well short of winning his fifth career Indy pole.
Now the focus turns to race day, the grand finale of Patrick’s farewell double, Castroneves’ continual quest for win No. 4 on Indianapolis’ historic 2.5-mile oval and whether Carpenter can kick off a family celebration with a swig of milk.
“When I was sitting in the car and I heard the 230, I asked the guys do we have enough gear to do that?” Castroneves said. “They said ‘Well, with a little help from the wind we could.'”
