“acres of fun”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

Loved the wonderful baked goods, candies, produce, and more! I recommend taking along a large tote or cart on wheels to carry all the awesome things you purchase. Be sure to eat the Pit Beef sandwich for lunch. The stand is located just outside the main entrance. Give yourself plenty of time to explore all the flea market buildings and outbuildings holding the antique shops!

“Fresh Produce---Great Prices”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

I have found that the best place to park here is to the far left in the grassy areas. I have previously attempted to park in the main lot and drive around , drive around attempting to find a spot. The produce and prepared foods are great. The one thing that needs much improvement at certain stands is their customer service. I have waited at stands that two clerks are having personal conversations ignoring the customers. Other stands the clerk is busy arranging meat and ignores the customers. Since there are other meat stands, I leave and patronize another. Then there are other stand holders very attentive to the customer. Always must get my treat--Finks French Fries

“So close to home”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

I have been going to Root's for as long as I can remember. It is a big place so be prepared to do a lot of walking. Once you find the exact places you want to go to, then bring good sturdy bags to carry your purchases around. I have found whatever I have been looking for from fresh meats, poultry and produce and even a glass butter dish for my daughter in law!!. The food that is available is awesome. So much to choose from When I have purchased food to eat there, it is very inexpensive and good. I look forward to Tuesdays!!
