We've just moved to Indianapolis and would love info from anyone in the area as to where you by bento supplies, quail eggs, and the like.
Thank you in advance,

Goose Market on Delaware might have what you need.

I've tried this one ...
Saraga International Grocery‎ 3605 Commercial Dr, Indianapolis
There also used to be a little Japanese market on the north side of town - I'll have to see if I can dig out the info on it-

Thank you so much Steph! The neighborhood was a bit scary but they had everything I was looking for.

Good!! I'm so glad! I really liked that store. We go to the Indy 500 every May and I made my husband stop there last time! I can't for the life of me remember the little japanese store's name, but I'll keep hunting for it for you - it might not be there anymore. Also, if you are a steak lover, you HAVE to try St. Elmo's downtown. Pricey, but worth EVERY penny. I used to be a vegetarian, now I crave their steaks!!!

Have you been to Weber grill downtown? They have a grilled prime rib that is to die for! I'll have to check out St. Elmo's. Was the Japanese store near Saraga? I was so excited when I saw they had fishcake and so many other goodies I've been wanting to try.

We haven't tried the Weber Grill, but it always smells SO good when we walk by...St. Elmo's...that's all I have to say about that!! :~) Just writing the name makes my mouth water! I think the Japanese store was Sakura Mart (Maybe??) - small, but nice selection of Japanese foods - I'm having a vague recollection of the name...The other one that you tried (Saraga) will probably have better prices, since it's a lot bigger. I bought some HUGE slices of pickled daikkon there - yummy! Had a hard time finding bento gear though...We're headed back there in May for the Indy 500 - it's the 100th running of the race, the 30th year my husband has gone, and he's turning 50! Should be a hell of a time!! We have quite a crowd coming to invade Indy! Also, if you haven't been yet, your kids would love the zoo - I've heard LOTS of great things about it!

The newest and most innovative bento box is the two level The New Generation Lunch Box by BrightBin. It can be used on its own like a lunch box (comes with a handle) or it can fit right into a child's (or adult's) favorite existing insulated lunch bag to replace plastic bags and small food storage containers. It is one unit, no lids to get lost or mismatched. The top level is a sandwich/entree compartment that is somewhat "leak-resistant" and the bottom level has three divided compartments. It is super cute, totally "green", a huge money and time saver... and it is totally non-toxic free of BPA, phthalates, lead, and PVC. Check out You will love it!

I have to recommend One World Market in Castleton! That might be the little Japanese market you mentioned. They have a big grocery section, frozen and refrigerated food, produce, some bento items, and a nice looking restaurant in the store.

One World Market-- one bento box, $18. About the same amount of foods as Sakura Mart.
Asian Mart-- huge place! yummy food, mostly Chinese... like dumplings. bought some kamaboko here.
