OMAR BREAD

“Oh Mom ! Here Comes the Omar Man”

Does anyone remember the Omar Man delivering fresh bread and cookies to your door? Indianapolis was one of several cities throughout the country with an Omar Baking Company factory. A large crew of driver/salesmen peddled fresh-baked goods door-to-door from the 1920s through the 1960s. The bread, cakes, cookies and other goodies were prepared at the Omar Baking Company on the  southeast corner of E. 16th and Bellefontaine Streets.
