Amish/Mennonoite bulk stores

Every once in a while I will see someone mention going to one of these. The closest one to me is a couple of hours away so I only get to go a couple of times a a year. Since they dont advertise heavily I thought we could make a list of the ones we know of.

Here's mine:

Weaver's Market, Versailles, MO

Bulk foods

Glenn's Bulk Foods, Pleasantview, KS just west of Hutchinson, KS.

Name of store???? Galva, Kansas, last building on the righthand side of the road as you head east out of town. A little bakery shop that is adding bulk foods as profits permit. Oh, I think the name is Emma Lou's.

You took mine! LOL! I was just there in August and this store is SO AWESOME! I've been rationing out the log of butter we got there.

Another good one is Zimmerman's in Rutledge, MO. Too far for me to go very often but I really like it. Any in E. Central MO?

Good idea!

I drive up to Martins Farm Market in Hagerstown, Md every 2-3 months. I know there are some in Harrisonburg, Va and Shippensburg, Pa has Hillside and Dutch something or other right off Rt 81. These 2 are Horse and Buggy Mennonite stores. I see someone mentioned Yoders in Madison, Va. My dd used to live near there when she worked at Mt. View Nursing Home in Aroda. Va while going to college in Charlottesville. That's a very nice store.

Oh, my.

An Amish bulk store? What are they like?

I visited a sams club out here, but I decided that we really didn't NEED a bulk supplier of chocolate covered pretzels and corn dogs!

Do the Amish/Mennonite stores have a different selection?

I live just west of the KAnsas City, Kansas area if anyone knows of any local stores. I suspect not, though. There are only a few Mennonite in the area.

Penn Yan, NY has a bunch but this is my favorite: http://www.oakhillbulkfoods.com/

Sauders in Seneca Falls, NY is second favorite only because it is too far for me to get to regularly.

About 3 miles north and 4 miles east of Clare, MI. Take the north US-127 Clare exit, go north on Old 27 to Beaverton Rd, make a right and continue east for a couple miles until you see the sign. Pine Valley Country Store. I was just there yesterday.

Dutch Maid Bulk Foods, between Savannah and St. Joseph, MO, on 71 highway. I love this store. I buy all my spices, whole wheat flour, grains, pastas, and beans, etc. here. They have very good prices. There is also one located in Jamesport, MO, but it is a 2 hour drive from me, so I haven't been to it much. Can't remember what it is called, but it is run by an Amish family.

In Pa, but worth the drive once a month or so is B&B's in Quarreyville: down the road is Goods, it reminds me of Woolworths. There is a regular grocery store called Mussler's in Buck and then there is D&K's in Red Line on the other side of the river, not Amish run but they have really good lunchmeats all around $3 a pound. Plus there is an Amish run hardware store in between, Holtwood Supply, where I buy feed and usually save at least $2.00 a bag compared to here in Harford county.

Terri, because I too was unaware of these phenoms, I did a google search and found Diane’s local store. The town has a website promoting the local crafts, foods and such.

http://www.shipshewana.com/

Cider, I also live in central Kentucky and when I purchased my place I spoke to the realtors about the local Amish and Mennonites. As it turns out most of the Amish have left due to the increased land costs. There is a small community in northern Kentucky in which some have come over from southern Ohio. Either way, my search shows no such store in Kentucky, but several in Ohio.

Terri,

Try the Garnett, KS area. There are quite a few Plain People in that region.

Our bulk food store is kind of a 'tourist attraction'. They have healthy bulk foods, all kinds of candy, cake decorating supplies, bulk spices and some kitchenware. Recently, they expanded their building and added a huge selection of Amish made furniture. They also sell candles & small gift items.

There is also a hardware store in Spring Glen that is owned by Amish, that reminds you of a mini-Lehman's.

Terri,

The two I mentioned are like hometown old general stores. They have wooden floors, every type of pot & pan you need, canners, cheeses, honey, bulk items like flours, salts, baking goods, oats, cereals, pudding mixes, yeast, etc, etc. just in big plain plastic bags. They also have many, many bolts of fabric at the Zimmerman store in Rutledge, MO. They have amish hats, shoes, stockings etc also. I've not seen any "craft" type items at either one of these but I imagine some of the others have them.

Not at all like a Sams or Costco. Way cooler!

Have a great day!

Hummingbird, I always say forget about the jewelry store and the flower shop, take me to an old fashioned hardware store any day!!! Actually, I'd also rather go to the feed mill instead of a mall! Maggie

Forgot to mention the "Amish Mall" on Mattoon Rd in Prattsburg, NY. It is an INCREDIBLE place to visit - a bunch of trailers PACKED with all sorts of farm and household gadgets, supplies and what not. They have tools, clothes, pot and pans, poultry feeders, ammunition, etc, etc. I can't begin to list everything they carry since I don't think I've ever been able to get through it all. No electric so you need to go during daylight hours and dress warm in winter. I think it is actually called "Shrock's" but we've always called it the Amish Mall because that is more what it is like.

Shetlers in Cabool, MO and also in Norwood, MO
this is a bulk foods store and a discount foods store. The store in Cabool now has a cafe.


Bylers near Seymour, MO
This is a bulk food store, hardware store and book store.

There is GVS in Versailles, MO (maybe it is near Versailles). It doesnt carry food but does carry plain goods etc.

There used to be a bulk foods store way down CC (the road that most of the Amish live on/near in that area) near Seymour, MO... I dont know if it has a name or not. We havent been there for 5 years or so.
