What to do today? Visit an Amish Farm, an Amish Farmers Market, An Amish furniture store, an Amish craft market, visit an Amish town set up to sell their goods, or just take a ride through the Amish countryside?
We headed into the town of Bird-in-Hand to visit the Farmers Market. It was a large two story building. First floor was bake good, deli meats, café and vegetable stands. Second floor and some of the first floor was all crafts. I would say 70% crafts and 30% farmers market. We bought some wonderful tomatoes and other vegetables.
Next stop was Kitchen Kettle Village in Intercourse, PA. This is a village set up with shops, restaurants, lodging, buggy rides and many other merchants selling locally made items. It started 60 yrs ago as a home selling their jams, jellys, and relishes and has grown into a third generation business.
We had lunch, visited many of the shops and started home when the clouds turned dark and it started to sprinkle. By the time we got on the road it was pouring.
We spent the rest of the evening, visiting our neighbors and sitting outside in the cool weather.
