In Holmes County, Ohio, and surrounding areas, you’ll find rolling hills dotted with charming farms as far as the eye can see. Lovely barns, silos and ponds create a picturesque landscape.

Holmes County is west of Dover/New Philadelphia in central Ohio, about 40 miles northwest of Cambridge. The county and surrounding area is a unique place - not because of its lovely landscape, but because it is one of the largest Amish communities in the world. It is known to many of us as ‘Amish Country.’

When I mentioned to a friend that I would be in Cincinnati for the day, they said, “You HAVE to stop by Jungle Jim’s International Market.” 

A few months ago a co-worker mentioned stopping at this store. Before that conversation I had never heard of Jungle Jim's. 

Everyone describes Jungle Jim’s the same way -- you just won’t believe it. 

They describe a huge store with an incredible inventory in Amish and international foods, an amazing selection of beer and wines and a cheese section that would blow your mind.

Do you ever get a particular flavor or scent or taste in your mind and there isn’t anything to distract you from obtaining that except the real thing? And, should you experiment with this or that it leaves you wanting the ‘real thing’ even more.

Southeast Ohio’s sweet corn is special. The perfect blend of flavors that signify what summer is all about for this region.

This weekend, lovers of sweet corn can fill their bellies with sweet corn dipped in salty, melted butter and served on the cob during the annual Sweet Corn Festival in Marietta.

Marietta’s tastiest festival begins Friday, July 19 at East Muskingum Park.
