Do you ever visit an Amish community and buy baked goods, furniture, baskets, etc. from them?

  • Yes, and it's the best! They have really good quality stuff, and they are always so nice. I love learning about how they live, it's so different from anything I've experienced..and its fascinating.

  • I did back in college. I would by bread every week from an Amish family at our local farmer's market. We use to also stop at their road side veggie stands too. They would set up there veggies at the end of their drive way and you put the money in a little box - honor system. Gosh, I miss those days.

  • Yes. We have several stores that are run by them. Good places to buy cheese, home made breads, jams, and all kinds of goodies.

  • When I lived in NJ I use to go to Delaware every other weekend with my Aunt. They had a farmer's market there and we use to buy bread, eggs, meat and sweets. Now I live across the river from Ohio and haven't made it there yet. But, that is my plan for one of these days. The Amish are amazing cooks and their bread is by far one of the best I have ever had. Next to my own, of course!!!!! LOL

  • I hope to make a trip out to north Ohio this summer to visit the Amish country and do some shopping. It's not something I have done on purpose before though. I have been to places that have Amish stores and have stopped in but it was not a destination. I found all the products to be very high in quality.

  • If I knew of an Amish community or store out here, I sure would! I enjoy wholesome, quality homemade food and other items, so it would probably be something I would do frequently if I could.
