Amish markets are essentially one-stop shops, featuring a variety of foods, baked goods, crafts, and furniture. And they’re especially fun in the Autumn, when sweets like cider donuts and pumpkin pies are among the offerings. While these bazaars are located throughout the country, here are some of our favorites in the Northeast.
Bristol Amish Market (Bristol, PA)
It’s all about delicious food at the market in Bristol, from kettlecorn and sticky buns to barbecue and seafood. There are also beautiful pieces of handcrafted furniture from Amish Furniture of Bristol, as well as outdoor items by River View Outdoor Products.
Bluegate Farm (Ronks, PA)
A true roadside, family-owned farmstand, Bluegate Farm is the place to go to pick up jams, baked goods like whoopie pies (and regular pies), fresh flowers, plus homemade root beer and horseradish.
Lancaster Central Market (Lancaster, PA)
As the oldest continuously-running farmer’s market in the country, Lancaster Central Market features more than 60 vendors selling their wares three days per week. There’s just about everything you could want or need, from fresh pasta to fresh flowers, fruit, coffee, and even baked goods for your pet at Lancaster Pet Bakery!
PA Dutch Farmer’s Market of Wyomissing (Wyomissing, PA)
You certainly won’t leave this popular market hungry. Get custom cuts of pork and beef at Christopher’s or seafood at the Grumpy Grouper. Save room for mouthwatering desserts, including shoofly pie, coconut custard, cookies, and much more. Or if you’d prefer a saltier snack, the Soft Pretzel Corner has you covered. As much of a spot to socialize as one to eat, this market is the best of both worlds—and coffee and donuts are available every morning at 7:30 am.
Kauffman’s Fruit Farm & Market (Bird-in-Hand, PA)
You’re in for a treat—or three—at this five-generation, 120-ace family farm. Fresh apple cider and cider donuts, and apples themselves are the stars of the show here, but you’ll also find canned preserves, honey butters, and more.
