The Sidney & Lois Eskenazi Hospital in Indianapolis, Ind., has entered the grocery business, according to an article on the Foodservice Equipment and Supplies website.

The 450-square-foot Fresh For You Market is attached to the Ingram Micro Mobility Marketplace, the main casual-dining operation on the campus.

The market offers groceries including produce and milk, eggs and cheese.
