Default Tim - we went to the Amish farmers market

I sure do wish it was closer to my home!
It was very crowded. They have great looking fresh produce, jams, honey, breads, herbs ...

and a sign not to wear 'strap tops' or low cut tops.

I bought some whole wheat bread and some jams.

I did have a cooler with us and probably could have bought some veggies, but decided not too. They had yellow squash for 70 cents a pound.

I wish I had some of that squash.

If you do, you need to go to Tellico Plains on a Saturday (12pm-4pm) and eat at the Tellico Bakery.
I had the BEST pizza I have ever had. I am not a huge pizza fan (but DH is). This pizza was great!

The Amish are very very conservative and don't believe in seeing uncovered arms and cleavage and stuff.

I need to make a run to the market, too. I want some tomatoes.

One of my neighbors bought some beautiful rockers from the Amish and ordered a bedroom suite. I haven't seen the bedroom suite yet but from his description, it is beautiful and well made.

We live about a 20-30 min. drive from a big Amish market - they took over an empty supermarket. They are only open Thurs., Fri., and Sat......then that changes for religious holidays.
Never noticed a dress code among customers.
They have two eat-in areas, we usually do lunch while we're there.
Fruits, vegs, meat, dairy, bakery goods.....all great. I usually bring a cooler.
I wish they had been there when we were furnishing this house. Seriously considering redoing our kitchen and getting a corner bench and table set from them.

Aren't these Amish markets all mostly up NORTH?
Although, we did buy 2 rockers from an Amish family & I think we were in Tennessee at the time.

Amish here in central PA are in trouble for using sludge - yes, sludge - human waste - to fertilizer their crops.

THAT IS WHY I WILL NEVER EVER NEVER BUY AMISH FOOD !!!

I bought my dining room furniture from the Ohio Amish. It is beyond beautiful.

The carpet cleaners were at my house on Saturday. I told them that I know they try to be careful and I like all my furniture but the dining room is my baby and to take good care of it!

I can not wait for the produce to start here.

We have Amish right down the road...not but 1/2 a mile who sell at their stand. All I seen today when I went by was strawberries...I am wanting tomatoes!

We also have Amish come to our door selling. And they sit out on the corner here in town and at the gas station selling produce, flowers, baskets, rockers, baked goods.

I do not buy their baked goods..unless I go to Berlin or Wilmot.

Actually Delano is a pretty good piece away from Tellico. If you go up 411, you will go through Benton, Delano, Etowah, Englewood, and then Madisonville Tn. (all teeny tiny little towns). When you get to Madisonville you will turn right at the hwy 68 bridge and follow it right straight into Tellico Plains! Well there is one little turn when you get to Tellico, it goes left and is marked well, and THEN you're in Tellico Plains (instead of on the bypass which will take you to Coker Creek. There are other ways of getting to Tellico between Benton and Madisonville, but they are country roads. The straightest shot up there is via 411.

When you get to Etowah and the 411/hwy 30 intersection, you will be almost exactly 9 miles from my house!! When you get to Madisonville at the hwy 68 bridge, you can almost throw a rock and hit my dd's apartment!!

Yes, but there's a very small community of Amish/Mennonnites here.

There is a big amish market a mile down the road from me. It's owned by a 'regular' person, but he sells only the Amish made products since there's a big amish community here. When he opened, he allowed 'regular' folks to sell their crafts and whatnot, but the Amish said if he would continue to do that, they were pulling out. So he let the regular vendors go and turned it into "Thee Amish Market". They do have beautiful furniture though.

There are lots of Amish stands all over for food and other things, whatever they specialize in that particular family.

About the clothing sign, I had to laugh because once I cut through some seldom traveled roads that mostly Amish lived on, and an Amish woman was standing on her back porch hanging laundry on a clothes line with a pulley. She had only her slip or nightgown top on (straps & exposing a lot of skin), she was in the middle of stretching to hang something when I came down the road. The poor girl was mortified, she was trying to crouch down to hide herself, but wouldn't or couldn't let go of the piece of clothing she was trying to hang. Finally she got it hung and put her arms across her breasts and slunk down onto the porch floor to hide. I felt so bad for her embarrassment.

As far as them being mean to their animals. I've never noticed that with most of the families here, in fact, their horses come running to them like a family dog would, so happy to see them. Mennonites I have heard treat their animals bad, and I wouldn't doubt that with some of the ones around here.

You don't have to go all the way to Sevierville.

OK, Caseymom, so just where do I have to go? I remember seeing signs somewhere up 411 I believe, that adv. Amish butter. But didn't seem like a big market.

It's in Delano/Benton, TN. On 411 N from you. Actually, you'll have to turn off of 411. I don't know if they sell butter though. The one time I was there I didn't see any butter. That doesn't mean they don't have it.

It's not a big market. It's more like a Farmer's Market run by the Amish/Mennonnites or whatever they are.
