    Great post! I was practically raised at the Reading Terminal Market. My parents had a soft pretzel, ice cream, and candy business there for years, and my uncle and grandfather still work there. Lots of my Amish relatives are in the market business.

    Thanks Mike! Reading Terminal is quite unlike the others mentioned in this post. Lots of hustle and bustle. Looks like I may have met some of your family!

    There is another spot you didn’t mention–Booth’s Corn in Boothwyn, PA.

    Fisher’s Pretzels at Reading Terminal Market are the best soft pretzels I’ve ever had. I’ve been hearing a lot about the Markets at Shrewsbury. The next time I’m in PA I’ll have to check it out.

    I am a standholder at the Newtown Farmers Market. . appreciate the link! Although not as large as Reading Terminal, Newtown Market offers a wonderful variety of foods. . . both Amish/Lancaster County goodness and ethnic foods.
    It’s a great place to shop!

      Colorado Amish markets

      Lee Ann the market stands tend to be a suburban/urban phenomenon, usually coming out of larger communities where it pays to travel away from competition to an “untouched” market. Colorado communities comprise a quite small population and none are that close to Colorado’s urban areas to begin with, so any retail stands are likely your typical farm stands or retail shops right there on the property. I could be wrong, but I don’t think there would be any Amish or PA Dutch type markets in Colorado cities.
