From wicker to fruitcake this one-stop Amish shop is just a fall or holiday adventure away.

Over southern Ohio’s Appalachian hills and through the woods to Keim Family Market shoppers go. Nestled in the heart of rural Adams County, it’s a day tripper’s paradise where you can lounge under the enormous shade trees at picnic tables overseeing enormous playsets inviting children to romp to their heart’s delight.

Whether you just want to breathe that crisp autumn country air or get a jump on your Christmas shopping list, this historically renown Amish shop has it all – indoor and outdoor furniture, bakery, deli, bulk food store, playsets, sheds, you-name-it.

Forty years ago, Roy Keim parked his horse and buggy along the scenic roadway to sell his wife’s pies. Word spread through the trucking community that these pies were to die for! So out of that humble beginning grew an authentic Amish merchant selling everything from furniture to fruitcakes.

Dan Miller is now the owner of Keim Family Market. He and his employees are from the surrounding Amish community. Together, they provide friendly service, conversation and quality goods just like Keim’s has been doing for decades. Their reputation over the years has grown, and so has their product line. But you can still smell the aroma of their fresh baked pies coming out of the ovens early each morning. And although the bustling business started as a bakery, it has expanded to offering a full service deli, indoor and outdoor furniture, children’s play sets, a bulk food store and much more.

Truly, you can get it while it’s hot! Whether you crave doughnuts, pies, cinnamon rolls or fresh-baked breads, the aroma floating in the air says it all. The peanut butter pretzels will make your mouth water.

If you want to do some cooking at home, fill a grocery basket with bulk food selections including spices and baking ingredients. The store also sells an enormous selection of canned Amish foods, sugar-free foods and old-fashioned candies.

The other half of the main building is loaded with dining room tables, hutches, bedroom sets, gliders, chairs and even computer tables with keyboard returns. All of which are hand crafted by Amish craftsmen. Wicker baskets, candles and quilts are also plentiful.

Outside are a bargain barn, art barn, and barns and pole buildings for sale. Take a stroll over the footbridges, also for sale, and find sturdy Amish-made gazebos, lawn furniture and much more. But take time out for a leisure walk to appreciate the colorful array of flowers and plants for the garden.

Whether you are lost in the rhythmic spin of a buggy wheel, find harmony in watching a handcrafted armoire getting fine-tuned or fall head-over-heels in the breeze that just delivered the smell of an apple pie cooling, you’ll find as thousands before you that Keim Family Market is a special place. So whatever you can’t cram into the vehicle to bring home, no worries, shipping is available.
