Slater’s of Sidney

Slater’s Fruit House is a pleasant little surprise on South Main Street (Route 13) in Sidney, Indiana.  Sidney is a small burg between North Manchester and Pierceton.

You can get groceries, including fresh produce, and plants for your summer crops at Slater’s. Today Slater’s had a large selection of freshly picked morels (those are dry-land fish where I come from). I picked up a dozen eggs, local asparagus, an onion, a head of garlic, and a double decker oatmeal pie (I was thrilled to find it was super-fresh) for less than $5.50. The folks were super kind – the nice lady at the register gave me some advice on cooking morels. Next time I might be brave enough to buy some.

Slater’s reminds me of a couple of local country stores back home. Good stuff, kind people, and off the beaten path. It is worth a visit.
