How the Old Order Amish Sell-

In Montgomery County, NY there are no Amish shops and markets as there are in Lancaster County. This area in Palatine isn't a tourist mecca. One has to drive around the country roads looking for signs that point the way to where items can be purchased (usually on the seller's property.) Farm produce, jams, jellies, and baked goods are sold from covered stands. The Amish person selling isn't always at the stand, but they'll hear a car pull up and come on out to a potential customer.
