Groundbreaking Ceremony Held at New Yoder's Country Market Location

Posted: Updated:

A Madison County business has the whole community excited. Yoder's Country Market is moving to a bigger location.

Yoder's Country Market officially began its expansion Monday, which will mean more goodies and gifts all under one roof. June 30 marks the groundbreaking of its new location just off Route 29 north.

"Well we have been very, very excited about this day, we've been dreaming about it for the last 10 years and this day is finally coming here. We've put a lot of thought and prayer into it and it's especially exciting to have all of our friends from the county and a lot of faithful customers and employees here to share the day with us,” said Michael Yoder, store owner.

Those friends all came out to the new location to celebrate the groundbreaking - shovel by shovel full of dirt. Many had kind words, saying the Yoders are an example of what Madison County is.

"It's about hard-working families succeeding, providing service to the community. It really showcases what Madison is about. It's about agriculture, it's about a simpler way of life, about family and community,” said Ernie Hoch, Madison County administrator.

Yoder says the market's mission will remain the same, no matter how it grows.

"Yoder's Country Market is to glorify God by giving prompt and friendly customer service, by providing quality products to the customer's satisfaction, and by creating a wholesome Christian atmosphere for each customer and employee,” said Yoder.

The family hopes to have the new location open sometime next spring.
