Lancaster Mud Sale
Don't let its name put you off. A mud sale isn't selling mud at all, any more than a garage sale is selling a garage or a yard sale is selling a yard. Rather, the term came into use because the sales are typically held in late winter and early spring, when all of the season's snows are melting... creating mud.

Mud sales are more community-focused than a garage sale or a yard sale, however. The point isn't to sell off your unwanted things, but to come together as a community and raise money for volunteer firefighter programs. The result is a fun-filled day that's more like a cross between a country fair and a church bazaar.

What You'll Find at a Mud Sale

Besides muddy feet, what else can you get at a mud sale? Mud sales are a combination of flea market, auction, and country fair, with lots of deals to be found. Here are a few of the treasures you may encounter this spring at the Lancaster County mud sales:

Mud Sale Food

  • Food: If you come for no other reason, come for the food! Mud sales are well known for their hearty food. Try the famous chicken corn soup, as well as other country fair-type fare, such as pork sandwiches, chicken BBQ, hot dogs, donuts, and more.

Mud Sale - Landscaping & Shrubs

  • Landscaping shrubbery and equipment: Spring is right around the corner, as evidenced by the mud you're currently standing in, so shoppers will find everything they need to landscape their Lancaster homes, from shrubbery and trees to lawn equipment.
  • Antiques: Think of a mud sale as a more community-minded, charitable flea market. Think you've got an eye for antiques? Keep your eyes peeled for the chance at a great deal.
  • Quilts: You'll love to cozy up with any one of the comfortable quilts that you'll find at a mud sale. These gorgeous, Amish-made masterpieces are usually auctioned off.
  • Crafts: Much like a church bazaar or craft sale, you'll also find a lot of homestyle crafts at a mud sale. This isn't your typical craft sale, though, as shoppers will also find enough Amish-made furniture to decorate their Strasburg homes in style.
  • Community: A mud sale is about more than just what deals you can find, or what food you'll eat. This is a time for families to have a good time, strangers to get to know one another, and neighbors to come together for a common cause.
