The Windmill

6 08 2009

The Windmill is one of those Americana strongholds that people flock to for purchasing fresh produce, Adirondack chairs, T-shirts, Auntie Anne’s pretzels, fudge, Pyrex, wind catchers, lawn ornaments, hammocks, and much more. 

Near Penn Yan, NY, the Windmill is a popular destination for tourists and locals. Comprised of four main buildings, an open street market, and various booths, you could spend the whole day browsing, eating, shopping, or people-watching.

The best parts of the Windmill are the inexpensive hand-crafted pieces of furniture…

…and the regional food, also inexpensive.

There is an actual windmill on site:

It is a lot of fun to go to the Windmill, but I generally leave my money in the car (because it’s safe enough to do so in upstate New York) and browse.
