    Erik, I don’t know if this is of any significance to you, but there there are a couple of items that are not / no longer correct. I’m pretty sure that the three Jamesport businesses of Country Acres, Graber Nursery, and Homestead Creamery are all owned by German Baptists. At least the first two are listed above as Amish.

      Jamesport MO area businesses

      Thanks Don, updated them with that info. I found 2 of them described as German Baptist-owned online. Graber’s Nursery didn’t have the same description, but if you can confirm that I’ll change it too. Thanks for pointing that out. http://jamesport.net/country/country_002.htm

    amish markets

    Fyi, by no stretch of imagination could Western Market in Ferndale, Michigan be construed as an Amish Market. It is a typical produce/meat/deli. I wouldn’t say anything except I would hate for anyone to take a longish ride there only to be disappointed. It is a nice produce market, but probably 150+ miles from anything Amish.

      Thanks, Catherine. Would you say our description of that location is accurate?

      “Carries some Amish products including fresh meats, cheeses and produce.”

      If so, I hope people who visit this page will read our description at the top (copied below), and not travel far expecting to find Amish people at a given market where they might not be (or, call first to be sure). Likewise we try to describe those places known to be Amish-run as “Amish store” or “Amish business”:

      “Amish Market” can mean different things. This directory includes:

      1.Venues commonly described as “Farmer’s Markets” or “PA Dutch Markets”, where Amish vendors sell goods a few days each week, such as those near cities like Baltimore and Washington, D.C.
      2.Non-Amish vendors selling Amish foods and other Amish goods
      3.Produce markets offering Amish-raised fruits and vegetables
      4.Amish-run shops located in Amish communities, typically selling food and related products

    Amish Markets

    Before I reply to your question, please know that I love this site, the good info and leads about Amish activities and bits and pieces of Amish news and info on new books on Amish Life. I enjoy seeing a site like yours where honest/real info is shared about Amish life. That being said, I found this list with its inclusion of “carries some Amish products including fresh meats, cheeses and produce” inaccurate. I guess it all goes to the definition of the word “some”. I may be able to find limited packages of chicken prepackaged as Millers, and a pint of cottage cheese using the name Yoder. But I could go to many stores, even big box, and see that.

    I just feel like listing a store such as Western Market as selling Amish goods, whatever catagory it’s put in is misleading. My concern was about product only, not “…….traveling far to expect Amish people.”

    I guess to me it is like the Amish Space heaters, not made by the Amish. Or Amish toys with a made in China tag.

    Just my thoughts, feel free to delete. Cathie Catsegal@gmail.com

      Sure, then I’ve just removed it as it sounds like you’re confirming they don’t sell any Amish-made products. There’s no intent to mislead (and I don’t know how we would even gain from that, it’s not like anyone on this free list pays for inclusion, it’s just meant to be a service for people looking for Amish products).

      We use a variety of sources to create these including online sources and what can be found on websites, and whenever this was created there was probably enough information to suggest that they carried “some Amish products” as we described it, so it fit in one of the 4 categories we describe at the top. We put all 4 groups in one list here because when creating it it didn’t really make sense to have 4 different lists.

      I hope people understand that they should check a place out before traveling a long way, I usually just assume that is understood (that’s why we give the website and phone info too). Additionally, the character of a business and its product line can change over time, which could also be a factor (so this can’t be an up to the minute account of what a place is selling). Basically we rely on reader feedback to adjust these lists over time, so thanks for the info and helping with the list. And thanks for your kind comments on the site!

    Bulk Foods Store

    I go to a bulk foods store regularly in Shipshewana called

    E & S Sales
    1265 N. State Road 5
    Shipshewana, IN

    They sell bulk food and regular can foods, cereals, coffee, frozen food, etc. They do sell a variety of cheese, Amish baked goods, and fresh produce. They do have a small deli and their ice cream is a big hit.
    The Amish community shop there so one must be mindful of all the buggies parked alongside the building. A young Amish boy will take your groceries to the car so remember to give him a little something. Both Amish and English shop here.

    Another store I go to regularly is
    Yoder Meat and Cheese
    435 S. Van Buren Street (SR5)
    Shipshewana, Indiana 46565

    This is a family run business. They have 80 different kind of cheese. They have every kind of meat you would want-chicken, beef, and pork. The meat is individually wrapped in white paper like in the old days. I like to buy the meat frozen. They have a wide variety of jerky too. If you get there at the right time, you will see the young Amish girls bringing in fresh eggs and produce.

    Hope this helps some folks. These stores are not tourist attraction, but real Amish places to shop.

    Amish Businesses

    Hi Eric,
    I love all the posts of Amish America and the Business Directory. Some time ago, I asked you if you would compile of list of stores that actually cater to the Amish. I am a sales rep for a Christian Publishing House and I have found stores with Amish customers actually do quite well with our children’s books. You replied with the names of some stores and I contacted all that were not already customers of ours. Will you be listing these businesses any time in the near future? Also, would it be possible to list stores that you visit while touring areas with Amish communities.
