On the same note...any kentuckians familiar with the Lincoln County (Crab Orchard, KY) fruit and veggie auction? I was also wondering if there were any bulk stores down that way? There is an Amish community there, but again I think they all shop Wally-World. I personally think Wally-World is way to high priced, and I cannot stand the crowds and clutter, and parking lot etc. I try to go to Aldi and Save alot and grow the rest myself.

Beachy's in Arthur, IL (well, really outside Arthur) among others in the area

Peachy's in/near Rockville, IN

and I hear there is one in Williamsport, IN

And I went to a neat dent and discontinue outside Montgomery, IN

Pretty cool places, really.

Bulk jimmies, sanding sugar, pectins, thickeners for canning, flour, etc., etc.

Schrock's General store in Spartansburg, PA. Used to buy all my baking business supplies from there when I lived in PA.

For central NC there is a Yoder's in Blanch NC, looks to be just SE of Danville.

Its a couple hours drive from RDU, I am thinking about checking it out this weekend. Need to get out of the burbs and see some countryside scenery.

and a little further east on 540th is the bent and dent store called Central Discount. It's not open every day though...I think it's only open Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday.

If you do happen to go to Kalona, be SURE to check out Kalona ice cream bars. They're absolutely DIVINE! They had them at Stringtown Grocery, Kalona Bakery and they're home-made at Yotty's Ace Hardware and Gifts. I'm sure there are other places there that have them, but those are the places where I actually saw them.

Yes, usually. But sometimes you can get a family pack.

Lynpea - thanks for posting this! I am about an hour from there but am not familiar with the area. The only Rt 616 I can find is in Amelia county. Do you have directions?

Thanks so much,

In western Pa, on the southwest side of Pittsburgh, north of Washington PA, in Burgettstown, PA (15021) is a nice Bulk Food Store with all of the grains, baking needs, gluten free stuff, a huge selection of lunch meats and cheese, actually a country grocery store with outdoor furniture, swingsets and all those amish made lawn items. They have a website which is: kauffmanmarketplace.com.

Anyone know of one near Madison, WI? My BIL lives about 40 miles from there and tends to go to Rockford Illinois frequently to see his parents, so anything near or between the two would be great - he really wants to start buying some bulk foods.

There's a nice Mennonite bulk food store in Fleetwood, Pa, it's called Echo Hill Country Store. I am always surprised to see the large amount of customers that are in that store. I regularly see license plates from New Jersey and New York there.

I live here and have never heard of this store. I'm going to have to look it up.

We do have a Backerman's Bakery and Store in Whiteville.

These are mostly coop links but some probably come under the broader category of "bulk foods".

Dallas County, Iowa

Keller's Kountry Store -- a bulk food store -- is just east of Dallas Center, Iowa. It is on R Ave., about a half mile north of Highway 44. Keller's is a small store, but she carries a lot of grains, noodles, dried fruits, canned meats, cheese, vitamins, teas, milk, and a lot of other things I am forgetting.

This store is a reasonable drive from much of Des Moines.

Cider, There is a Mennonite bulk food store in Auburn (about 20 minutes West of Bowling Green). Also there is an Amish bulk store in Guthrie, in between Elkton and Hopkinsville off Hwy 79. There is also an Amish Bakery (Slabaugh's) and an Amish tack store (Penchem's) if you have horses. Dettweiler's, also an Amish bulk store/ hardware store is around Munfordville, I don't know the exact directions but if you stop in Munfordville you could get directions. There are also three really good salvage stores in Munfordville run by the Amish.

I keep a list of Amish/Mennonite & Bulk Foods Stores in OH. Those in bold are the ones I actually shop at. I think my favorite is The Ashery. I've been shopping there for ages. It's small, but it's packed with good stuff. Hershberger's is good too. Can't say you'll save any money though. Things in Amish Country (Holmes County area) are expensive! I'm just copying and pasting, so hope the links work.

6. Country Store Bulk Food, 14396 Dover Road, Dalton OH (1 mile west of Mount Eaton OH on US Route 250). Watch for sign on the north side of the road as it is easy to miss.

I suppose it would be too much to hope for an Amish/Mennonite store in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles.......sigh.
