Amish and Mennonite Food Stores in New York

Amish and Mennonite Food Stores in New York

 

Upstate New York is home to a growing community of Amish and Mennonite families. Drawn to the area’s fertile soil and available farmland, they have become a pleasant fixture here. It is very common to see horse-drawn buggies on the roads, young Mennonites in their late teens and early 20′s are often seen riding bicycles along the hilly countrysides in the Finger Lakes area.

Both communities have very strong ties to farming and agriculture, but many Amish and Mennonites have started support businesses, cottage industries, and retail shops such as furniture building, construction, bulk food stores, fabric and dry good shops. These family owned businesses are bringing back authentic shopping experiences to our area in a time when homogenized big-box stores are everywhere, and to be honest I just really like shopping at them, especially the bulk foods stores.

Amish and Mennonite Food Stores in New York are a great place to shop to stock your pantry with basics ingredients, or buy items for long-term food storage. I usually shop with a massive list, I have 25 herbs and spices I consider essential and usually buy 6 months to a year’s supply at a time, I also buy a bunch of flour, oats, beans and sugars, but in slightly smaller quantities, there was a pantry moth incident a few years ago I am not keen on reliving.

All the stores are slightly different but generally you will be able to find the following items at most Amish and Mennonite Food Stores:

  • Lentils
  • Oats: instant, rolled
  • Nuts: cashews, almonds, walnuts, peanuts, etc.

Martin's Grocery Outlet is a Mennonite store in Clyde in Wayne County at 112 Columbia Street (at the site of the previous Save-A-Lot). The store features close-to-date foods at really good prices, fresh staples that have plenty of time on them (like dairy and bread), scratch-and-dent items (the box is scuffed, but the inside bag is sealed, etc.) and a mix of local and shipped produce. They also carry local crafted items (not a whole lot of those), bulk goods and spices and Plain-origin foods like Walnut Creek brand. The meat department cuts in-house. The store has quite an array of frozen goods. You can also find Plain-baked goods in addition to national brands. They have an assortment of household items, health & beauty aids and cleaning supplies. It's like a fun little treasure hunt each time you visit to see what's available. They accept cash, credit, debit and EBT. Closed on Sundays. They're generally open 8:30 to 6, and a little later on Fridays and Saturdays.

Miller’s Market (Mennonite), Number Four Road, just south of Lowville, NY (Lewis County). GREAT meats: ground beef (the best flavor!),beef roasts, steaks, their own smoked bacon, their own breakfast sausage, jerky, so much more; also butcher shop, some bulk food. Frozen chicken thighs, breasts are meaty & flavorful. If you are going to visit Nolt’s just north of Lowville, do not miss Miller’s when you’re in the area. Closed on Sunday.
