Are there any Amish markets near Hershey/Harrisburg? I'd like to buy some of their cookies and cake/other food items before I head home after a trip to hersheypark. Thanks!

I should mention that we are heading from NJ... stopping briefly in Ottsville PA and then going to Hershey (but staying in Harrisburg) We we want something along that route. Lancaster is going to take too much time to get to so we can't do that this trip.

The Farmstead Farmer's Market is located at the intersection of PA routes 743 and 22. You can easily take route 743 north from the end of Hershey Park Drive to access this market. When you are done shopping you can then take 743 north to Interstate 81, just a few miles north of the market. This is not a big farmer's market but there are two bakeries (not sure if they are actually Amish bakeries). There is also an excellent soft pretzel place in the market as well as other vendors. They are open Friday 8 am to 6 pm and Saturday 8 am to 3 pm. Here is the link to their site:

If you are returning along interstate 78 you should get off at the Krumsville exit and try Dietrichs meats www.dietrichsmeats.com.

Not Amish but as Pennsylvania Dutch as it gets. Highly reccomend the Lebanon and Sweet Bologna, and the pies.

dietrich's meats is great. They have great bacon and some really good smoked cheeses too.

they have some really funky stuff, too! We have stopped there 2 times already and will always stop whenever passing by.
