Troyer Market has always drawn visitors eager to experience the authentic taste of Holmes County and take a bit of the flavor home with them.

A visit to Troyer Market is a must for visitors who want a genuine Amish Country experience. Few places can offer the authentic taste of Holmes County quite like Troyer Market. From the first moments you arrive, the feeling is enticing.

A true destination, it has always been more than a market. Now more than ever, Troyer Market is drawing a crowd.

“We’re remodeling our market to make it an even better shopping experience with even more variety for our visitors to choose from,” manager Dave Vogt said.

The immense selection of high-quality foods under one roof is already second-to-none in Amish Country or anywhere else. Troyer Market has long had a reputation for stand-out service. The shopping experience starts before visitors step through the doors.

On the porch, most any time of year,

locally grown seasonal produce greets visitors. Candy onions, asparagus and strawberries in the spring make way for green beans, cucumbers and tomatoes in the summer. In the fall, visitors have their pick of peppers, pumpkins and squash.

Visitors will see more locally grown seasonal produce from the start. Now that the remodel is finished, Troyer Market is rolling out the welcome mat in a big way.

“We’ve put in a new grand timber-frame entrance onto our porch to welcome visitors,” Vogt said.

And the newest addition at Troyer Market, Katie’s Café, will entice visitors to stay a little longer.

Troyer Market has always drawn visitors eager to experience the authentic taste of Holmes County and take a bit of the flavor home with them.
