    Thanks, Erik, I will put these on the list for the trip to Pa next June. Love the pun, Riehl McCoy! In return, do you know Farmerstown Furniture in Farmerstown, Ohio? Amazing furniture and some lovely tricks to catch out the customers! If you haven’t been, you’ll have to go, to find out what I mean. The owner has a wonderful sense of humour – another far-cry from the stern and solemn stereotypical Amishman!

    Wish I were there!

    Erik, thanks for the photos and background of Shrewsbury, and Fran, I’ll certainly keep Farmerstown Furniture in mind if I’m ever in the area (at least as much for the “fun” factor as for the furniture—it sounds like a place I’d love to visit!)

    Erik, you must have the metabolism of a hummingbird, with all the Amish food you describe partaking of! (Lucky!)

    The market doesn’t “look” Amish. I wish we had similar markets up this way (not just the one I’ve heard about in Chicago), selling Amish food and wares. The furniture really caught my eye…yes, we have Amish furniture shops around here, but I’d love to rub elbows with actual craftsmen!

      Alice Mary, I wish I had that kind of metabolism! Running around helps.

      Speaking of hummingbirds, the ones I’ve been seeing in NC are looking pretty plumped up…apparently to make it across the Gulf of Mexico in one go.

    Hi Erik,
    I had breakfast less than an hour ago and now I am hungry again!
    That sandwich sounds yummy – could you please email me one?

    Comment on Erik have you tried a stuffed pretzel sandwich yet, a specialty in this area. (October 1st, 2012 at 15:31)

    Erik have you tried a stuffed pretzel sandwich yet, a specialty in this area.

    Nice post Erik and my mouth is watering thinking about those sandwiches, and to be honest I have never been to this market or even knew it existed. I have been to the Harley Davidson plant In York county for a few factory tours (they are free) and in fact I am shooting to go down that way again this weekend so I will try and make a pit stop at this market.

    Erik is it me or is almost every sandwich in the Lancaster area be of the stuffed pretzel variety, it seems to be a specialty and I have to say that I “love them”. I think this area is pretty much the pretzel capital of America anyway, and folks if you have not had a steak and cheese stuffed pretzel your really missing out on something.

    The best one that I have tried has been from an Amish food stand at the Green Dragon Market, sadly this market is only open on Fridays (seems crazy). And these folks also make the best cinnamon bread that I’ve ever tasted, and when you pick it up to buy it you will notice that its pretty warm and smells great!

    Hi Erik, you were in my neck of the woods – I’m less than an hour from there. Richard, just take 83 down to Shrewsbury and it’s right around the (country) corner. Haven’t been there for a while, but your post makes me think I’ll have to get over there soon again. Thanks for the pics!

    Comment on mmmm, deli! (October 1st, 2012 at 19:42)

    mmmm, deli!

    I love delis at farmer’s markets.

    I also like the sound of butcher’s at work regardless of the store setting. The sound of the screaming saw cutting something into pieces of meaty goodness.

    Maybe that’s what I should look into doing for a career.
