Anna’s take: 9th Street Bistro is in the process of opening its restaurant in downtown Noblesville. In the meantime, it has items available for pre-order and at the Noblesville Farmers Market every Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon at Federal Hill Commons. The meals come refrigerated with reheating and freezing instructions. I sampled each of the following: Chicken pot pie ($15) with roasted chicken, carrots, celery, potatoes and peas in a homemade pie dough; shrimp and polenta ($14) with garlic marinated shrimp sautéed with roasted tomato, shallot, peppers, chorizo and pimento-cheese polenta; and beef stroganoff ($14) with beef braised with shallot, garlic and mushrooms in a light dill cream sauce and homemade pasta. I also tried the freshly baked rosemary focaccia ($4) and pimento cheese spread ($6). Each of the items has serving recommendations, and some serve one to two people whereas the pot pie can serve up to three. Everything was delicious and homemade, and it was so easy to pop it in the oven or microwave and enjoy. The menu changes weekly. New menus are published on Tuesdays. Pre-orders are accepted by Friday for the Sunday Supper Club, which is a ready-to-heat pick-up on Sunday afternoon. Each week’s meals are available at the market.
