The story of a family business

A taste of Amish Country
in western Pennsylvania

The Kauffman Family Marketplace was founded in 2001 by Harlan Kauffman and his wife Esther, who had recently moved to the Burgettstown area from Lancaster, PA. Harlan had grown up working on his family's fruit farm and food market and saw a unique opportunity to bring PA Dutch-style Amish products to the Pittsburgh area.

In July 2001, Harlan and Esther, with the help of their six children and Harlan's parents, launched the Kauffman Family Marketplace, a one-stop shop for quality food, lawn furniture, and swing-sets imported from Amish producers in Holmes County, OH and Lancaster County, PA.

The Kauffman Family Marketplace is a family affair.

What People Say

Harlan and his family/staff have always been really kind to us when visiting the store, and when they came to our home to setup our children's swing set. The outdoor furniture and swing set have held up over the years.

By far the best market place in Pennsylvania, to find hard to find items. They carry so many different powder mixtures for anything you can think of. Very friendly service.
