I have been to Mary’s Market before, except then it was called Mary’s Bakery. Now it is Mary’s Market and it is one of my favorite Amish bakeries. There’s something about Mary…her market is amazing and authentic. If you are looking for an authentic Amish bakery experience, this is it. It’s located in a small, non-descript outbuilding and most of the baking is done by Mary herself. You’ll hear her and some of her bakery helpers speaking in a deep dialect of Pennsylvania German and you’ll find a couple of aisles stocked with everything from hand-made candies to homemade noodles and she even sells fresh eggs from her hens. I bought some and, man, the bright orange yolks…super tasting….
I visited Mary’s about 10 years ago and made a video. You can watch it here. Wow, I was younger looking.
Here are some scenes from Mary’s:
