Our neighbors, the Pennsylvania Dutch, are bringing it to the big city for a three day festival starting today. And by “it” we mean Amish-style pork sausage sandwiches, apple dumplings, donuts, funnel cake, hand-churned ice cream and basically all of your favorite Lancaster County culinary delights.
The festivities take place at Reading Terminal Market and continue into the weekend until Saturday, August 9th when the celebration moves outside to Arch Street in true county fair style. The outdoor portion of the festival will include horse drawn carriage rides, a farm animal petting zoo and live bluegrass music. When you’re stuffed with fudge and nut brittle you can browse the crafts section for wooden toys and homemade quilts.
Who says you can’t pet your pig and eat it too?
