Long-time Markets shoppers may remember this stand at Aunt Lydia’s Salads. But for the last two years, The Salad Shack has been owned and operated by Steve and Grace, a couple dedicated to giving back to their community. During the last half hour of each market day, they sell their menu items for just $2/lb (up to 50% off) and all food remaining at the end of the week is donated to local churches to help feed those in need.
And what amazing food it is! They feature a wide range of traditional Amish fresh salads (7-layer salad, coleslaw, macaroni salad, and potato salad), made with local ingredients. They also sell daily hot meal options, like PA Dutch pot pie, and a variety of mouth-watering desserts. For something different — try their egg or pumpkin custards.
To make entertaining easy, trays of their fresh salads, hot meals, or desserts are available for pre-order.
The Salad Shack is also very popular for pickles! It’s hard to miss the barrels of pickles that line the front of the their stand with flavors for every taste. If you want something hot and spicy, try their Old Bay pickles or horseradish pickles. For something more mild, their lemon pickles are another favorite.
The owners of The Salad Shack are committed to making their customers feel honored and welcomed with a smile and a “hello,” so be sure to stop by!
