Visting An Amish Bulk Grocery
[Editor's Note: It is estimated there are fewer than 250,000 Amish in the United States and Canada. This quiet, private population of people do away with many conveniences of modern life, including electricity, and live simply, often in rural areas. This post takes us on a tour of an Amish bulk grocery store, which is very different from the big chain grocery stores at which many Americans are used to shopping for their food. --Genie]
Inside An Amish Bulk Grocery
The first aisle just inside the door is the spices and baking supplies, where I spend most of my time (notice the skylights and air-powered fans—the Amish don’t use electricity). This particular store has only three aisles. The second aisle contains grains, pasta, cereals, nuts, jello and pudding, sprinkles, extracts, honey, etc.
