If you haven’t visited Minnesota’s Largest Candy Store yet, it’s definitely worth a stop!
Minnesota’s Largest Candy Store is now open for the season! They opened May 7 and will stay open through Thanksgiving. Hours are currently 9 am – 7 pm daily.
This is one of our favorite family destinations, especially when our journeys take us on 169 South. It’s located just past Jordan when you’re heading south – seriously, you can’t miss it! You might also hear it referred to as Jim’s Apple Farm. (They do not have a website.)
The store is absolutely HUGE and is so much fun for everyone to explore, whether or not you have kids. Besides the main attraction – the candy, of course! – there are lots of fun photo opportunities and unique artwork. There are themed rooms such as Gotham, an underwater-themed room, and a new Harry Potter-themed Hogwarts room.
It can get busy on the weekends as well as holidays, so keep that in mind if you have little ones to keep track of. You might be better off planning a mid-week morning stop with the stroller.
You’ll want to bring cash as they don’t take credit cards, but if you forget, there is an ATM available.
There are LOTS of other treats to shop for besides candy – jams, soups, local meats and cheeses, baked goods, a huge soda selection, and much more. My personal favorite is the caramel apples – they are the best I’ve ever had!
Minnesota’s Largest Candy Store, also known as Jim’s Apple Farm, is located near Shakopee in Jordan, MN. This can’t miss yellow barn and fence, located along Highway 169, is one of Minnesota’s most unique attractions. Come to this seasonal business, open mid-May through November, for hard-to-find sweets, wonderful and fresh baked goods, the world’s largest selection of sodas, a large variety of popcorn, pastas, and meats and other products raised or made locally by surrounding farms. This unique and nostalgic place is the perfect spot for people of all ages!
