I'm not sure if there are any Amish communities, but there are a variety of farmer's markets that start up in May in the area. I can't wait for the fresh fruit, veggies, etc. I usually go to the Johnson City farmer's market, but I hear there is one at the fair grounds in Gray and one in Kingsport, but I've never been to either.

No idea about Tri-Cities, but there are several Mennonites in Greeneville/ Greene Co. about 30-45 minutes from Johnson City -- enough for a large church. There's a furniture-making store and also a bulk goods / fresh foods store. I don't think they have a website but they're on Hwy 107 right before you cross into Washington County.

I don't know what the tri-cities are is, but there appears to be an Amish community in Ethridge.

Hi, RonTrish. There is an Amish bake shop in Limestone. You may find a story about it in the archives at www.timesnews.net. I have also seen Amish items for sale in the Kingsport area, but I cannot remember where. There is an Amish community not far from Cookeville. And if you're ever in northern Ohio, you can find the nation's largest community in Holmes County.
