Mud sales are annual auctions/sales held at a number of local fire companies. These sales attract thousands of locals looking for bargains on anything from Amish quilts and antiques to local produce, buggies and lawn equipment.
March is typically the start of mud sale season in Lancaster County, but this year we’ve got the first one this Saturday – February 23 – the Strasburg Spring Consignment & Mud Sale. While there are always plenty of us “English” in attendance, we are generally outnumbered 2 to 1 by folks from the Amish community.
Enjoy roaming the grounds because there will be several auctions going on at once (for buggies, livestock, fresh produce, farm equipment, quilts and more), as well as tons of food to purchase. Local favorites like sausage sandwiches, Amish baked goods, homemade pretzels, and freshly made donuts. So if you’re looking to experience a bit of the Amish culture without being invasive, a Mud Sale is a great experience to try! Just make sure you wear your boots.
