I canít find a link to the exact article, but in the magazine Bon Appetit on page 90 there is an article on Rootís Market, titled ď Pennsylvania Dutch Treatí by Mark Rozzo. I will have to buy that magazine to see the full article. http://www.bonappetit.com/magazine/toc/august_2010_toc
I found out about the article from a newsletter I received each month from Rootís Market. This is what the newsletter says.
ROOT'S "IN THE NEWS"
"Local farmers, particularly Amish and Mennonite, are always found at the Dutch country's abundant farmers' markets, including Root's Country Market & Auction, my favorite, outside East Petersburg. It's a sprawling, ramshakle complex where goats, chickens, ducks and rabbits are auctioned off every Tuesday and all manner of Dutch goodies (from Lebanon bologna to guilty-pleasure whoopie pies you eat right on the spot) can be purchased from the farmers, butchers, and bakers who made them." Pennsylvania Dutch Treat by Mark Rozzo, Bon Appetit Magazine, August, 2010
"If you really want to make a day of it... Here is (one of two) fantastic markets that combine indoor and outdoor vendors that I promise will make the drive and day worthwhile. Every Tuesday as well as the first Saturday of each month, Root's Country Market & Auction in Manheim, PA is a farm shoppers dream. ... They have just about everything for sale from produce, plants, flowers and food stands with amazing prices to Florida type flea market items and live farm animals such as chickens, roosters, goats, etc." ... "There's even a "Pickle Lady" stall indoors... who makes the best homemade pickles I've ever tasted, in more varieties than you can imagine. There are about four huge indoor buildings, as well as maybe hundreds of outdoor vendors..." Best Tastes by Ilene Spector, Special Writer, Baltimore Jewish Times, July 2, 2010
