    Amish stores

    What about typical Amish “general” stores? Such as:
    East Drumore Foods
    Little Britain rd
    Quarryville, Pa 17566

    or

    Pleasant Valley Store
    429 Sproul Rd
    Kirkwood, Pa 17536

    I shop store like these quite often, I know listing Farms that sell eggs and produce and such is impossible,We also shop at Amish nurseries too, like:

    Maple Shade Road Greenhouse
    451 Maple Shade Rd
    Kirkwood, pa 17536

    Would be nice for these types of businesses were also listed, not just the tourist trap markets.

      Smaller PA Amish stores

      Bill I agree the smaller Amish stores need to be listed as well, though probably in a different section.

      Right now we have a mix of markets/stores above, though a lot of them are of the PA Dutch market model with a number of Amish vendors under one roof–though a few might fit the description, I’m not sure “tourist traps” is an accurate description of a lot of these places. Ideally this would be just the PA Dutch farmer’s market listings with those smaller free standing stores going somewhere else.

      If you or anyone else would like to compile such as list of smaller Amish food category stores I’d be glad to use it to build a new page. I have that on the list of things to do but have not gotten to yet.

      Anyway I appreciate the comment; the reason I deleted the other comment you left is because it was identical info as this, and since these are PA businesses, would rather have it posted here than in the general market section.

        Small Amish Markets

        I would love the list of smaller Amish food category stores since we are very soon going to be making a trip to the Lancaster area and plan on trying to find some of the smaller Amish run roadside markets and stores. I am especially interested in a genuine Amish run bakery.

        Thanks,
        Angela Gates

          Amish bulk food stores

          Angela, you may want to see the comments at:

          One of the bulk food suppliers has on online store locator. It’s a great help and source of information to find bulk food stores in any part of the United States, and match them up with zip codes from Amish settlements. For example, Kinzers, PA is 17535. Not all bulk food stores are Amish or Mennonite, but many are.

        List?

        Hi,

        Did you ever compile a list of the smaller stores? I am heading out to PA soon and I’d like to buy direct.I think my daughters would like the experience. I am looking for food and those round bowls they use as well as an Amish second hand store, if that exists.

          Thrift Store Lancaster County

          Leilah, you asked about an Amish second hand store.
          I don’t know about Amish-owned stores, but the Amish patronize:

          Country Gift & Thrift Shoppe
          5602 Old Philadelphia Pike
          Gap, PA 17527
          Phone: 717-768-3784

          Unique to this location, Country Gift and Thrift plays host to regular “quilting bees,” where local Amish and Mennonite ladies regularly convene in the quilting room to quilt beautiful new quilts that are available for sale.

          Three other second hand stores benefit MCC:
          -ReUzit Shop of New Holland
          -Ephrata Re-Uzit Shop
          -Mount Joy Gift & Thrift

          Second Street Thrift, in Denver, PA, benefits Home International.

    Retailers of Supplements/Nutrition

    I will be doing a sales trip out in the PA area, specifically targeting the Lancaster County area. I know some grocery stores sell supplements/herbs, but do you have a list or can you direct me to a list of businesses currently selling supplements? I’d love to make more specific travel arrangements to visit these locations. Thank you!

    Can you tell me the location of the Amish/Mennonite Farmers Market? I’ve seen the YouTube video of it but it doesn’t give the location. Thanks!

      Root's Country Market

      Wm., are you talking about Root’s Country Market?
      705 Graystone Rd, Manheim, PA 17545
      (717) 898-7811

      Or do you mean a produce auction, or something else?
      It would be interesting to know which YouTube you are referring to.

      AMISH / MENNONITES FARMERS MARKET IN PENNSYLVANIA

      Wm, I found a YouTube for “AMISH / MENNONITES FARMERS MARKET IN PENNSYLVANIA LANCASTER COUNTY, THE OLDEST.” The comments guess it to be either Green Dragon, Root’s Market, or “Lewisburg Farmer’s Market, Lewisburg, PA, Union County.Held every Wednesday.” The maker of the video said “THEY HOLD A FARMERS MARKET TWICE WEEKLY.” This mystery should be solved!
