GREAT PIE RUN - Amish Country
Saturday, May 10, 2014
It's Spring time, the snow is gone, and it's time for a Pie Run! We will meet early at Catoctin Mountain Orchard in Thurmont, MD, take some great back roads and head north to The Markets at Shrewsbury (PA) for lunch.
It’s recommended to bring a cooler to keep their pies/food from sliding around in the trunk, especially since we have some fun driving to do!
We have been here so many times do we really need to repeat ourselves? Many of us have been known to leave CMO w/ 12+ pies. CMO is a mom & pop operation specializing in homemade fruit pies, either baked or frozen. They also have other baked goods, fresh fruits, preserves, jams, jellies, dressings and cider and BLAH, BLAH, BLAH. YOU MUST TRY THE APPLE CIDER!!!
Note: I highly recommend ordering your pies ahead of time since we are a large group. CMO recommends pre-orders be done PRIOR to May 8th. The pies can be ordered freshly baked or frozen. When you place your order, reference the "BMW group". The pies range in price from $8.95-$12.95. Check their site for the different types of pie.
IMPORTANT: The deadline for calling or emailing orders for pies is Thursday, May 8th
This place is HUGE! The Markets at Shrewsbury is one of the larger Amish markets in the area and significantly better than those typically found in the DC/Baltimore area. The farmers market has all your fresh produce, meats, cheeses, baked goods, and various vendors with prepared food. Also, throughout the market, they have a wide assortment of vendors selling fresh flowers, crafts, furniture, and gifts.
The Market at Shrewsbury is also host to several car shows throughout the year, so they have plenty of great parking for our cars.
