This has been in business for many years and I have found shopping there hit or miss. Many items are overpriced but they will dicker and often if they see you walk away they will do far better. The food is wonderful and it is fun to watch the Amish go about their activities.

As flea markets go I've seen a lot better but I have not been to one with such good food. In particular we found the sweets shop really tempting and came away with several items that we have not seen the likes of anywhere else. This is well worth a visit.

Inside you can find the entire community getting their breakfast or lunch from the Amish people behind the counters. I get my meat at the butcher inside weekly. The bakery is one of the best around. Outside you will find something of a large yard sell. Very informal, loads of fun.

I recently visited Spence's with my mother on a Friday about an hour before closing. Many kiosks were already closed. I found the quality of the items to be less than similar or identical items I have purchased in stores where I live. I ended up purchasing an old German Stein which I bargained down a bit but still felt... More

This place was awesome! Huge variety of foods! The amish working there were very nice and helpful. They had so much to try so we tried a lot! The pretzel with egg and bacon was the best! The cheese stick was on point too. We got some of the different desserts to bring home and they didn't disappoint either. Hope... More

We visited on a Saturday around noon for lunch. All I can say is YUM! I am not much for flea markets, so I did not find anything appealing in the remaining buildings, but it was afternoon, so many vendors may have Already left.

When driving through the Dover area I always try to stop at Spence's! Good outdoor flea market. The main reason is the Amish Market inside. Pork tenderloin sandwich, ribs and other cooked meat are fantastic. So are the fresh baked pretzels! Desserts, donuts and cheese oh my! This is a place you need to stop by -

Spence's is now open on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. The earlier in the day that you can visit, the better. The vendors arrive between 5 and 6 to pick their tables and set up (most have the same tables every week) and so the antique dealers are there early to pick up any good antiques that might be there. So,... More

Spences is a good place to walk around especially in the summer when the vendors are set up outside. Good food inside from the Amish. There's alittle bit of everthing and also an auction.
