    Do the Amish dress and package beef and pork as was done in the seventies. My family is interested in purchasing meats from the Amish. What are the requirements to accomplish this request. If so, is there any way to contact the Amish in Mechanicsville, Md or Lancaster, PA

    I visited an “Amish Market” in Burtonsville, MD which has since moved to Laurel, MD. I didn’t think to ask what district they were from. Does anyone know?

      Also, Sydney, I believe the Amish who are vendors at the markets in Laurel and formerly at Burtonsville are from Lancaster County. I know that the vendors at the Annapolis market come down from Lancaster County. Have had some nice conversations with the delightful teens who work there.

      Do these communities welcome visitors? (May 21st, 2014 at 13:37)

      Do these communities welcome visitors?

      @Rachel Ward
      You stated that you knew who ran 2communities? I’m visiting Maryland for the first time next month. Which Amish community is closer to Maryland? Do they allow visitors? I’m trying to get the most out of my visit. Thank you for any information.

    I grew up outside of Washington, DC and not far from the Southern Maryland/St. Mary’s County Amish settlements. It was always a treat, fascinating to drive the side roads around Charlotte Hall area as a child. Also, we’d pass through the Loveville area and always thought that those settled there were Amish … now I know the difference! We are driving to Maryland this weekend and am looking forward to our pass through St. Mary’s County, hoping to stop at the market in Charlotte Hall.

    Nice little Dutch Market in Laurel... (November 30th, 2011 at 22:27)

    Nice little Dutch Market in Laurel...

    The “Dutch Market” in Laurel, MD is a nice little market. Their meats, cheeses, desserts, and fruits/veggies are always top notch! I was there a few times at the end of the weekend and saw them loading things into trailers and vans with PA plates on them, so I would assume they are Lancaster Amish. I miss being able to go to that market and the Bird-in-Hand market in PA.

    Eric–have you ever visited the Amish settlements in Oklahoma? I would love to find out more about what they might have to offer in way of markets/bulk dry goods.

      OK Amish (November 30th, 2011 at 22:33)

      OK Amish

      Melissa my orbits haven’t yet taken me to Oklahoma, but since it has my favorite name of all states, I need to someday!

      Here is a little piece I wrote on the Amish in OK though…it’s not super detailed on the businesses, but it mentions some names of food-related businesses (also the auction), which you can then Google for more specific details: http://amishamerica.com/oklahoma-amish/

      Come to think of it Oklahoma might also have the best postal abbreviation :) It’s at least pretty OK ;)

    free wood (March 8th, 2013 at 10:33)

    free wood

    I have a distribution company that has a waste product of wooden crates. We send them to the landfill but I want to find an Amish group that could recycle them into their finished products.

    Amish Markets

    Looking for an Amish Market to rent space in Essex MD. Approx 10-30 K square feet for really cheap. How would I go about contacting someone to see if there would be an interest to open an Amish Market in that area? Any help is appreciated.

    more maryland amish

    For what its worth. There are by my count at least nine Amish families who live in northern Cecil County MD. That is not counting the Amos Esh family whose house is in Pa. but whose barn 50 ft. away is in MD. They all belong to church districts with the southern Chester County Pa. Amish

      Thanks gilfish for adding this to our info. I may have driven past a home or two of which you speak. I believe we’d still consider these families part of the Lancaster County settlement even though they spill over into Maryland. You see this in some settlements, such as the Elkhart-Lagrange, Indiana community with families in Michigan, and the Adams County, Indiana settlement with households in Ohio. Nice to know though.
