Spring Lake Market and Fabrics

Today, I took a ride over to the Spring Lake Market on Wolcott-Spring Lake road across from Yates Rd. If you've never been there, it is run by Mennonites and it's definitely worth the drive.

One side (the yellow side) is all fabrics of all kinds, anything you could want. They also have some craft stuff, yarn, needles, notions, books, etc. The right side of the building is food. In the refrigerated part, they have all kinds of fresh vegetables and some other stuff. You have to watch the date on some of the packaged/boxed food though, as it can be outdated and the kind of stuff you would find at Buda's next to the Regional Market in Syracuse.

Some really good stuff can be found there, like homemade jams and jellies, and on Fridays they bring in homemade goodies like cakes, cookies, bread and pies. My favorite part of the store is the fabric side ( all kinds of neat material to make curtains out of) and the Friday baked goods. Today also, I picked up a lot of children's tights for only 50 cents a pair! Good deal!

The store has a play area for small kids too. They sell some of my favorite drinks too, the “
Kutztown Sarsaparilla and Birch Beer” sodas.
If you are looking for food in particular and more than just a small amount-I'd head over to Sauder's in Seneca Falls as their foods-bulk, fresh, and deli-can't be beat! (It's also a Mennonite store and quite large.) Or combine trips and hit up both of these stores in the same day. In between you can visit the Montezuma Refuge!
