When we were living and working full time we didn’t get much of a chance to visit Green Dragon. It is only open on Fridays. Since this is the last time we will be here for a while and we had a break in the weather (no rain until late afternoon was forecast), we decided to take the trip and pickup some fruits and veggies.
Green Dragon is basically in Ephrata, PA a few miles from the PA Turnpike exit off of Rt 272. It is a combination of buildings large and small and an outside flea market. They have a couple of auctions as well. Kind of like Roots that we visited earlier in our trip.
There are a couple of places at Green Dragon that you have to visit, one is a little stand outside that makes Apple Fritters and Corn Fritters. These 2 inch balls of greatness are a must have. Today they were 3 for $3.50. The other place is inside one of the building (#6 I think) and they sell Monkey Bread (some people call it Monkey Brains). It is basically small pieces of Cinnamon Rolls all stuck together. Both go great with coffee or tea.
