Summer is prime time for auctions. The town of Belleville smack dab in the middle of Big Valley in Mifflin County, PA is home to a long-running auction and flea market, which attracts a large contingent of Amish and English alike.
The auction is held each Wednesday year-round. Livestock, farm equipment and many other items go up on the block each week.
The flea market features booths run by both Amish and English as well, selling foodstuffs, Amish-made quilts, produce and other items. I had a good lunch while I was here at a good old down-home cooking restaurant, but I can’t remember the name. A few photos from the auction grounds:
One comfy ride. And a snack for later.
The parking lot is filled with buggies of the three different Amish groups of Big Valley.
