Open Thursday through Saturday, The Pennsylvania Dutch Market is something to experience. Put it on your travel list and if you're local, you will enjoy experiencing the culture of the Amish without making the drive to Pennsylvania. The Dutch Market offers handcrafted furniture (some furniture is even made on-site), hand-made jewelry, and of course the food. Oh, yes, the food!
When you enter the building you are immediately transported to the Amish way of doing things —hand-made everything, it seems. From pies to doughnuts to cakes...even potato chips, the workers are up early making the goods and the goods are some good eating!
Want some fresh meat? Go over to the Amish Country Meat counter where they have the fresh trimmed beef & pork. They also have , roasts, chops, ground beef, bacon, sausage, & deli meats. out in the open ready to serve your specific needs or you can get your fresh poultry at the BBQ pit. Want food ready to order? Did you know that Amish make a pretty mean batch of fried chicken? The market also serves mile-high sandwiches and subs.
With Easter right around the corner, you might want to check out the array of Easter Candy offered. And if you're not ready to break out the apron and flour up the counter; they have hot cross buns ready for your Good Friday activities. Just get them before Good Friday because they will be closed for the holiday.
