You mean Pennsylvania Dutch Market? A friend of mine talked me into working there with her in middle school. It was kind of crazy - like nothing I had ever experienced in tilly or VA before LOL. They did not use power in the store, only generators, so in the middle of summer with all of the fans going, the generator would go off and all of the amish guys would rush to get it turned back on. They didnt use cash registers either, so we were basically paid under the table every day. The Amish would drive in from PA every day by the van load, and the girls and guys our age barely talked to us, it was like we were foreign to them.
They made some killer pretzels though,I definitely miss those. Crazy how SteinMart is there now, and the little section with the chinese rest. and chantilly donuts is gone.
