Amish Market is a local chain of gourmet grocery stores in New York City. Amish Market is a brand name, it is not owned or operated by Amish people, nor does it cater to Amish people. The original three owners of Amish Market are from Turkey. "Like Mr. Eren, the other two owners are from Turkey. The chain's name comes from the original store, Amish Farmers Market, which bought all of its produce from Amish farms in Pennsylvania, Mr. Eren said. Eventually the store, which was founded in 1991, expanded and began offering different products, but the name stuck. The stores still carry many products from Amish sellers in Lancaster, Pa., Mr. Eren said."[1]

As a teen, rapper Cardi B worked as a cashier at the Amish Market Tribeca store.[2]

In 2013 Adem Arici, one of the co-owners of Amish Market, was sentenced to five years in prison by the Manhattan Federal Court for charges related to tax fraud and witness tampering[3][4]. Preet Bharara, then United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, was involved in the prosecution of Arici.

In 2007 the Amish Fine Foods company had plans to expand the Amish Market chain to 30 locations.[1]

It is not clear how many Amish Market locations currently exist, as the chain does not appear to have a central website. The Seamless food delivery service offers delivery from four Amish Market locations in Manhattan.[5] Google search shows three locations in Manhattan.[6]
