Fill your Easter basket Downtown.

Downtown has all the tools necessary for a hare-raising Easter basket. Be it cupcakes, chocolates, trinkets, spring blooms or eggs. Pay a visit to The Flying Cupcake on Mass Ave for special Easter offerings including giant carrot sandwich cookies and specially decorated cupcakes. Silver in the City and Mass Ave Toys offer a wide selection of nontraditional small gifts including handmade stuffed chickens, niche cookbooks and a large stash of bacon items!  The Easter Bunny is sure to satisfy the sweet tooth with chocolate eggs (fillings: peanut butter, marshmallow, caramel and chocolate truffle), chocolate bunnies and fill-your-own pails (in place of basket) from The Best Chocolate in Town.  Stock up on eggs for decorating from a local farmer at the Indy Winter Farmers Market. Be sure to join the Indianapolis Propylaeum April 7 for a FREE Easter Egg Hunt and pictures with the Easter Bunny!
