Amish grocery stores are unique and you need to visit one if you haven't. This one was quite large and had a lot of cheeses and produce as well as bulk foods and Amish preserves.

I love to shop here for cheap spices! I specifically love to get dried onion flakes and taco seasoning. I also stock up on wheat flour and wheat pastry flour. I enjoy the experience of seeing the Amish gardens, clotheslines, and buggies nearby.

About three miles north a Kalona, just east of the Kalona Dairy, is the Stringtown Grocery. Operated by members of the Amish/Mennonite religious community, the grocery offers bulk foods at reasonable prices. The building, while new and spacious, is "off the grid," with natural lighting...More

We head to Kalona twice a year and hit up Stringtown grocery. They have expanded again, this time in the refrigerator section. More produce but not as much meat this time around. Plenty of bulk seasonings, pastas, cereals, candy, chocolate, cake sprinkles of every color....More
