The Amish Flea Market Every Illinoisian Needs To Explore At Least Once
The town of Arthur is the epicenter of Amish Country in Illinois. More than 2,000 Amish families live in and around the town which was established in 1865. Visiting the area is like visiting another world, or at least another time period where a simpler life is revered and modern conveniences are not. Pass by one of the area’s farms and you may see teams of horses tilling the land. Around town, you will notice horse-drawn buggies traversing the streets as the main mode of transportation. If you are slightly curious about life here, it’s best to plan your trip on a day when one of the First Saturday Arthur Markets is scheduled.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
Visit the quaint town of Arthur, visit its downtown where you will find a bakery, art and craft boutiques, restaurants, and furniture and gift shops. And adding a stop at an Amish flea market will only enhance your trip!
