John and Evangeline Anderson have a heart for people. They, too, are raising a family and know how hard it is keep up with static incomes and continuously rising prices. Anderson’s Country Market is their way of giving practical help and offering hope to their community in this time of economic instability.
John and Evangeline are two of the most down to earth people you will ever meet. John is a talented carpenter and has run several successful small businesses over the years. Evangeline is an excellent cook and ran a very successful Pampered Chef business for many years. (She is the person to ask about cooking or recipe ideas…) They have also both been involved in ministry basically their whole lives, including having pastored and also having worked for a missionary organization which supports indigenous ministries, mostly in third world countries. They have three children and one of them, Jana, works with them in their business.
The Andersons started their retail business in April 2008 with mostly salvaged/damaged goods. At that time, there was a small amount of Amish-style bulk and specialty foods. As time as progressed and they’ve heard their customers’ requests, the store has gradually changed from a salvage store to a specialty store.
The goal for Anderson’s Country Market is a more than just a store. They hope you will feel the difference the minute you walk through the doors. The Bible verses on the walls are a representation of their love for God. With Jesus having done so much for them, it is their goal to share His love back to the community. The warmth that you feel and the smiles that you see, is because of what Jesus means to them.
Another goal is to the give the community an alternative when it comes to grocery shopping. The store is filled with high quality food items, organic foods, specialty items (such as gluten-free, sugar-free, homemade preserves), Amish meats and cheeses, etc.
Their wish for you is that you will leave their store with a smile on your face and joy in your heart. As you enjoy shopping at Anderson’s, we hope you will feel inspired to do some home-cooking and enjoy good times with family. Anderson’s Country Market certainly is a place that is “Just friendly folks, with old fashioned prices!”
