The Amish Market in Flemington, New Jersey

On a trip to a quilt show, I had the privilege of spending some time at this Amish Market in Flemington, New Jersey. At breakfast the second day (Yes, I had to go there twice as it was that wonderful!), I asked my server if it would be acceptable to photograph the market if I avoided taking pictures of the people. She said YES! This is the photo journey of my time.

Some of my favorite Amish Proverbs from the book "Amish Values for Your Family: What We Can Learn from the Simple Life" by Suzanne Woods Fisher  
  • Kindness is a language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.
  • The kind of ancestors you have is not as important as the ones your children have.
  • The best things in life are not things.
  • A family that works together, grows together.
  • Very few burdens are heavy if everyone lifts.

Here is the website if you want to plan your trip to this wonderful place:
