union grove

For pony express and river rest, 901 north turn right by union grove school ( the school is on the left-you turn right there. go all the ways down til you get to a crossroad, its a few miles down. there is a little tiny cafe when you look to your right, turn right there. go about a mile or two down and you will see a church with a shelter in front, turn left there. go about another mile and look to your right, it is a white building on your right. That is the older smaller one.
Now to the really nice newer one- if you backtrack and start out by the little cafe, just go to the right and its not real far on that road you cant miss it i think its called shiloh general store. hold on i have the card on the frig -okay here it is 5520 st paul church road- hamptonville. maybe you can do mapquest. sorry, i dont remember the names of the streets, I just go by the landmarks. Do you all live that nearby?

Mennonite stores

There was one in Butler MO when I went there for a sheep/fiber festival. The festival is no longer held in Butler so I can't vouch that the store is still there. Take the second Butler exit into the main part of town. Go under the RR track and turn right at the traffic light. The store is on the right (west) side of the road. They also have a greenhouse/nursery in season. Nice people.

green5acres,
I live near Lenoir & Blowing Rock. DH's family is in Statesville area. I'm going to plan a trip to check out these stores. Thanks for the directions. Are you near Charlotte? My home town.

I just saw another one in my travels. It's in Cumberland Co. VA. on Route 616, called "Country Store." I used to go there when I lived over there. Since I have been gone they have moved it into it's own building. It used to be in a Nursing Home that they run.

green5acres,
do you know how far of a drive that is from Charlotte? That may just be doable for me.

Thanks, green5acres!
Do you know the name of the store & if they have a phone number?
How about the scratch & dent store? When is the discount day?
I need to know specifics if I'm going to try & drive 80 miles --- Mapquest is not too much help!

They are all over Ohio's Amish country. There is one in Fredericktown, I can think of several in the Wayne County/Holmes County area, Gambier, Nashville, OH.

We went to one in seymor mo for several years but it was in a back yard and the food was buggy last time we went.
Our favorite one is in Jamesport Mo. Thats North east of KC Mo. About 4 hours for us but we only go every couple of years and work in a weekend visiting our children in the KC aria at the same time. I need to go and get more yeast. I buy it in bulk and freeze it and it lasts for a couple of years that way. Cocoa is so cheap there. Also spices. I just love those stores.

Amish Country Kitchen . 3100 Gretna rd Branson, MO. this is actually a mennonite store but they have a good selection of spices, pasta. flour, cheese, etc. as well as furniture. Probably a little more expensive than others considering it is in a tourist area.

I go to one in Ephrata, NY.. off of Rt. 10

It is a building on their property, mostly just Amish go there... I see an occasional "English" there when I go. I get my bulk flour, oats and other goodies while I am there. I order peaches and pears by the bushel to can also. They truck them up from PA.

I also go to Glenn's Bulk Food in Pleasantview, Kansas. What a wonderful place to stop at and then go to Yoder, Kansas to window shop and lunch. A wonderful girls day out you can't get more relaxing than that.

Mars Hill Amish and Bulk Foods in Mars Hill NC. Great, fantastic, best butter in the world. And flour and rice and bread and meat and herbs and spices and these chocolate covered soybeans that'll make your knees weak.
Hey, NC and SC people. Question for you ! Troy, the guy who runs the one in Mars Hill wants to franchise to me in my farm store in Forest City NC. An hour from Charlotte and an hour from Greenville, SC. Would it be worth it? Would you come? PM me and let me know. It can be open by early spring if you guys are interested. I have the space and I have the connections and would love to do it.
