Pat’s Bulk Food is a landmark in Southeastern Indiana, providing unique and reasonably priced, quality foods in large and small bulk packages since 1990. We are the second owners, having purchased the business in the Spring of 2016 when the original Pat retired. This corner store dates back to the 1920’s, when it began as Welch’s Grocery. In 1990, it began it’s new life as an Amish-style bulk food store, still drawing generations of customers from across Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky!
We maintain an extensive variety of baking ingredients, spices, flours (19 kinds!), nuts, grains, pastas, homemade nut butters, raw local honey, Amish jams and jellies, meat cures & seasonings, Bragg’s vinegars, and frozen food items.
We have been recognized by the State of Indiana for our dedication to proudly providing and promoting Indiana Grown products.
We continue to expand the selection of natural, gluten-free, non-GMO, sugar- free, and organic items – that taste good and are good for you! We offer a varied selection of Indiana raw honeys that includes local (delivered to our door by the beekeeper), and seasonal varieties that are naturally flavored by the different flowers pollinated by the bees. We recently began carrying raw Buckwheat Honey, packed with healthy benefits and a robust molasses-like flavor. Dr. Oz even recommends it!
Our freezer contains Indiana pork products, all-natural chicken breasts, catfish, cod and whitefish, as well as local 93/7 Ground Beef and ground Pork Sausage. We keep a fresh supply of quality LEM spices, high-temp cheeses, and products for hunters and home meat processors.
Our selection keeps growing with homemade Chess Pie, fudge, homemade ice cream sandwiches, hemp protein powder, cane sugar soft drinks, pasta sauces, salsa, soup mixes, breakfast items and an entire aisle of retro candies! Our Apple Butter BBQ Sauce alone is worth a shopping trip! And, for you Cincinnati transplants, you can pick up our in-house spice-blend for Cincy-style chili, and original LaRosa’s Spaghetti Sauce and Pizza Sauce!
Besides wonderful choices of food items, we also carry many kitchen essentials that are perfect for the novice and professional cook/baker. They also make great gifts! Items include Rada knives, Amish-made quilted potholders, cookbooks, candy molds, flour sack towels, canning items, cake boxes and boards, cake decorating items including wafer paper, cookie, biscuit and donut cutters, and pie pans and the list goes on!
