Greenfield Chocolates was named Greenfield Main Street's Member of the Month for November.
Greenfield Chocolates is owned by chocolatier Jayne Hoadley, who makes her gourmet goodies under the business name J. Evelyn Confections.
Hoadley has been selling from her retail shop since 2012. Sea salt pecan chews, pecan toffee and turtles are among her biggest sellers. Her candy creations have earned Hoadley the title of Indiana Artisan, a coveted designation given to crafters of high-quality Hoosier-made products.
“Jayne is not only a talented candy maker, she's also a passionate advocate for our downtown," said Shelley Swift, Greenfield Main Street's executive director. "Jayne serves on the Greenfield Main Street board and is always willing to help plan and promote fun events and foster a sense of collaboration among fellow merchants. She's truly driven to help downtown Greenfield thrive."

Bradley United Methodist Church
Bradley United Methodist Church was named Greenfield Main Street's Member of the Month for October.
The church has a rich history dating back more than 175 years in downtown Greenfield, where some families have worshiped for generations.
"We wanted to recognize Bradley for the community-minded role they play downtown," said Joanie Fitzwater, Greenfield Main Street's board president.
From Easter egg hunts at Riley Park to trunk-and-treat events at Halloween, the church makes a habit of reaching out to local families. The church also allows the public to park in its lot on the southwest corner of State and Penn every day but Sunday.
"We love being downtown," said Sue True, the church's Community Life Leader. "There was a time when building a newer church elsewhere was considered, but we wanted to stay in downtown Greenfield," she said.
Fitzwater and countless others hope the beautiful church with striking stained glass windows remains an anchor in the downtown community for generations to come.
