“This is probably the biggest non outdoor/wilderness adventure tourist draw in the Delano area. A group of old world order Mennonites (no power & no engines, etc) farm 500 acres here and grow some amazing produce and sell it and some homemade crafts and soaps, breads, etc. at this little market. Open April-September or so and Monday - Saturday from 9-4. It is cash only. It's a must do!”
