When are the Amish shops open?The Amish shops are open Monday through Saturday year round (the Amish do not receive visitors on Sunday). If their sign is out, that means they are “open.” Most of them are open for visitors from dawn until dusk. They are not open on Christian holidays, including Ascension Day, which occurs 40 days after Easter. Road and driveway conditions in winter and early spring may limit accessibility.What can I buy from the Amish shops?Below is a list of some of the Amish made goods you will find in the shops. •Fine Functional Hardwood Items•Baskets for Many Uses•Beautiful Quilts and Spreads•Superior Hardwood Furniture•Wild Berry Jams and Jellies•Handmade Soaps•Fresh and Home Canned Fruits and Vegetables•Homemade Breads, Pies and Sweet Treats
