Had wanted to go to this Amish/Mennonite community for years but could never fit it into a Tennessee trip until this spring. Got off I 40 and drove past standing stone landmark in Monterey (see listing) then went way out and around through the Tennessee country side on smaller and smaller roads.At least they were all paved. It seems like the mileage on the signs is slightly off. I think it is closer to 15 miles than 10. I know it certainly took a long time to wind our way out to the Muddy Pond community. By the time we got there, it was only 20 minute to closing and the employees were already trying to sweep up and lock up. However, they were gracious and helpful even to late arrivals. After we all made a stop at the flush restrooms, they let us turn the lights back on and we went to the upstairs where most of the quilts and such are. We didn't buy a quilt, but did find a nice table centerpiece. Downstairs is mostly grocery and snack items and we found some things there we just had to have as well so the car was riding a little lower on the way back to the interstate.

Lots of stuff here that is not good for you! Charming and authentic hand crafted stuff. Prices are OK, the hand-made stuff is a bargain. worth a stop if you are in the neighborhood.

This is a Mennonite grocery store that has a lot of options! We loved it. They were offering free cookies the day we visited. Would definitely go again!
