Well, it appears as though Baltimore City now has it's own Amish three day market. I have occasionally visited the Cockeysville/Hunt Valley Market (used to shop at the Carrol County location when it was in business).
So, It's a "treat" to have an Amish Market nearby to my home. I tend to gravitate to the baked goods and some prepared vegetables. My hubby loves the candy section (stuff he can buy anywhere--but he seems intriqued by their selection).
Have only once or twice purchased meats from the Hunt Valley location. The steak was sub-par. Could have gotten better quality at Giant or even Super Fresh.
So, why am I enchanted with these types of markets? Nothing really sensational or exceptional. Just fun shopping in an attentive atmosphere perhaps??
Oh, lest I forget. I have found that there are some quality cheeses at competitive prices.
Since I haven't ventured out to the newest location, would love to hear opinions of any Chowhound who has shopped there. FoiGras
