Amish Market

Around here, one of the most delightful signs of Spring’s arrival is when the Englewood Amish Farm Market re-opens. We mark the date on the calendar and literally count down the days until we have access to gloriously fresh produce that hasn’t traveled on an Interstate.

The way to the market, off of Hwy 411, is marked with hand-written wooden signs.

This early in the season,  produce is “limited” to a variety of greens, lettuces, and radishes. They also have farm fresh eggs, but they sell out early.

The green house is just getting going, too. They have different varieties of tomatoes, and already have lots of herbs, including a handful of basil varieties (purple, cinnamon, lemon, and plain basil).

Also for sale are reasonably priced hand-crafted items, like porch swings and carpenter bee traps.

If you find yourself in the area, be sure to stop by. Remember that this is an Amish-run farm and business, so please be respectful of their culture and customs.

They are cash-only, appreciate conservative attire, and some of the kindest people you may ever meet.
