The range of local products is excellent. In the summer time at peak 600 vendors sell their goods. These range from crafts to bakery products, meat, cheese, first-class maple syrup, Mennonite furniture, household goods and clothes. 
The people on the market are very friendly and always ready for a chat.
Most of the Amish and Mennonites speak Pennsylvania Dutch, an old German dialect with English words. Therefore, it is not surprising that there are stands with German folk music as you can hear in the video.
