  • Wooden Bridge Dry Goods: If you SEW, go here!

    This shop, run by Old Order Mennonites, is a treasure trove for quilters and anyone who knits, sews, crochets. The women working here are friendly & knowledgeable. People drive from a distance to explore here and usually leave happy & loaded down with fabrics. They carry Bernina sewing machines. My neighbor even buys muslin here to sew into bags for making summer sausage.

  • Echo Hill Country Store: This place puts "Whole Foods" to shame!

    A few miles from "downtown" Kutztown, Echo Hill has something for everyone. Run by Mennonites, they carry everything any foodie or amateur/serious cook would desire. Flour? Over a dozen types, many organically grown. Multiple types of oils, sugars, noodles, grains (from bulghur to spelt). A small lunchmeat counter w/great prices; vegan foods; holistic remedies; an entire aisle of herbs/spices. Need a 55 gal. drum of wildflower honey? Got It. , also available in 6 oz. bottles. If you wanna make your own sausage, they have the grinders, the sheep or hog casings, and all the cures/spices...you only need to supply the pig. Check it out if you're anywhere in this neck-o-the-woods, folks drive the 1+ hour from Philly to shop here.
