I will be traveling through Selmer, Henderson, Jackson, Camden and Paris soon and would like to find some of the Amish/Mennonite type food stores while visiting. I would appreciate any recommendations.

pudlemom, you will be passing a bakery, candy store, and food supplier as you drive up 45 south from selmer. it is plainly marked and sits on the right side of the hwy. i go there 3 or 4 times yearly to pick up fleur de salle, baking gluten, specialty spices, special chemicals for food processing...they have almost as much baking needs, etc. as the knoxville gourmet market on kingston (i think.) gourmet market has a much better line of culinary specialty tools, french butter, jams, etc. it is my favorite, and i go about 4 txs yearly. they are reliable about shipping anywhere in the u.s. anyway, the store on 45 has various fresh baked goods---cakes, cookies, breads. homemade jams, jellies, preserves, relish, on and on. they are very friendly and helpul...they will appreciate your business. good luck.

Kingchef, thanks so much for your reply. That sounds interesting. I bet they'll have unique flavorings and extracts. I am specifically looking for soft white wheat for making pastries, etc. I hope they carry it.

Are you referring to Ada's Unusual Country Store with the hoop cheese sign? I came across a reference to this on a Tennessee vacation website.

yes, ada's is the place. i'm sorry for not telling you the name when i answered your post; however, i was trying to do three things at once and pet my cat, who was walking on my lap top. they do have different extracts---good madagascar vanilla, good pure extracts, lemon, orange, rosehips, etc. i have bought bread flour there on several occasions and in large quantities. i have been able to purchase bakery quality flours for pastries and cakes, bleached and raw...i think you will like it. i have always been pleasantly surprised w/ the variety and amount of items they carry. by the way, i was able to beat the king arthur price for pastry flour through food service at this establishment. that is always a good feeling.

No problem! I appreciate your answering at all ;-).

I am actually looking for soft white wheat berries/kernels, but may pick up a little flour if that's all they have. I'm eager to see the extracts. Oh, I bet I could load up on cake flour and freeze it, too. The King Arthur brand is not available where I live.

What kind of chemicals for food processing (if you don't mind my asking)? That sounds so interesting. I make my own jams and jellies, but I'm sure they'll have flavors I don't make/have never seen. I can hardly wait!

I'm trying to remember the name of that place in Murray, Kentucky not too far from Paris, but failing. Google says nothing on it, but does mention that the Amish sell at the Murray farmer's market.

beachmouse, Perhaps my friends will know of the place in Murray. Thanks for mentioning it.

Capt. Dan, I can certainly understand that. For me it would be the maple pecan glazed long johns or whatever they're called.

No idea. It's been 10+ years since we lived in the area, and I remember the food, but not the name or location of the reataurant & gift shop.
