NOBLESVILLE, Ind. - CBS4 This Morning continues our Nicole in Your Neighborhood series with Yelp to give you an inside look at local businesses in our community.  Anchor Nicole Pence will bring you a new feature story every Wednesday on CBS4 This Morning.

They're expanding to keep up with the growing community! Broccoli Bill's offers Hoosiers fresh, local produce and they've been doing it for 20 years.

You'll find Gray Road Market by Broccoli Bill's in Hamilton County where Carmel meets Westfield and Noblesville.

The local mom and pop produce shop is doubling its size to keep up with the neighborhood.

"Been here for 21 years. When we came here, there was nothing around," says Bill Weghorst. Weghorst is the iconic, Broccoli Bill.

"I enjoy talking to people!"

Weghorst and his son Mark stock the shelves with local, fresh produce from Indiana farms. For example, a farmer in Whitestown picks the tomatoes the night before and brings them to Broccoli Bill's the next morning.

"We are small so we can buy things in small increments. We keep everything very fresh," adds Weghorst.

Broccoli Bill's deli also offers customers fresh sandwiches and salads. The chicken salad is a family recipe.

"It's my mom's recipe. Dill is the main ingredient that separates it from other recipes," explains Weghorst.

Our friend Brittany Smith from Yelp Indy says Yelpers are excited about the expansion project. Broccoli Bill's gets high reviews for selling the freshest produce. The bakery also makes breads and cinnamon rolls in house.

"It’s a great place to bring your families in and learn about produce. They sometimes have farmers come in. You can purchase a sweet corn and learn from the farmer and teach your kids about nutrition and Indiana farms," adds Smith.

With the expansion project, Broccoli Bill's is bringing in two local businesses, Natural Born Juicers and Caplinger's Fresh Catch and Cuts. The goal is to make the small town grocery a one-stop shop for customers.

"We will end up with 24 foot of actual case space with fresh products that people can take home and cook themselves and we can cook here," explains Andrew Caplinger with Caplinger's Fresh Catch and Cuts.

Caplinger's will sell fresh seafood and Indiana meats, including Amish chicken and pork tenderloins.

"One of the things that you are seeing grow in Indiana is more markets popping up and housing several businesses under one roof. The Yelp community really loves that," says Smith.
