If you’re looking for a completely unique day trip destination, look no further than the Village Shops at Down A Country Road. Just as the name implies, it’s a group of shops in a remote locale. But what the name doesn’t tell you is how incredibly charming the shops are. Or that they carry a great mix of merchandise, which includes Amish goods, locally-made items, and unique wares from national markets.

A true hidden gem, the Village Shops At Down A Country Road are tucked away in the heart of Wisconsin’s largest Amish community. More specifically, they are located along Highway 33 near the small town of Cashton. Offering a unique shopping experience, “the village” includes a mix of colorful shops. There are seven stores altogether, and they carry an assortment of merchandise as colorful as the stores themselves.

Just as you’d expect, there’s an Amish store, where you’ll find a wide variety of handcrafted treasures made by local Amish families. If it’s great eats you’re after, you won’t be disappointed with Emma’s Kitchen. Step inside, and you’ll find a wide variety of goodies, like jams and jellies, noodles, home-made candies, honey products, maple syrup, pancake and bread mixes, and other food products. Younger visitors will surely appreciate Country Corner Ice Cream Shoppe and Kinner Korner Children’s Shop, which carries an array of furniture, toys, and gifts for the wee ones. The village also includes several gift shops, where you’ll find all sorts of unique wares and one-of-a-kind items – some of which are sourced from markets around the country.

So, are you ready to pay a visit to this charming group of shops? The Village Shops at Down a Country Road is open May through October. For more information, call (608) 654-5318. You can also visit the Village Shops website or Facebook page.
