Most of the other reviews sum up this place pretty well. It is a very large flea market. Just because it is in Amish country do not think that it is just Amish items. Most items are not. Also, there are not a lot of antiques or other items that you might expect at a flea market. There is a... More

Larger than average flea market.A lot of items not found elsewhere. Good variety , but a lot of repeats. Parking only $3 for all day. You can leave in your car and come back later on the same parking pass the same day.Plenty of interesting shops in town also

We bought a very nice made from recycled materials bird feeder and a blouse made in Bangladesh from two nice oriental ladies. Not exactly the Amish stuff we expected. Why were we expecting home made pies? It is after all a flea market. The market runs Tuesday and Wednesday. If you want to experience the local culture visit other days;... More

You do have to pay for parking but thats it.I have to make a visit to the flea market at least once a year(only living 20 miles from). Yes on a bright sunny day if it is in the 70's it will feel like its in the 80's make sure you have sunscreen and sunglasses. You will see some amish... More

We visited several days in this area and experienced the huge flea market with over 1000 venders and unique shops within walking distance. We also enjoyed an Amish Wedding Feast dinner at the Miller's Amish home and learned of the Amish wedding practices. We also ad dinner and saw a play at the Bluegate Theater of "Half Stitched", a musical... More

Most remarkable. It's HUGE!!! If you're older you may want to rent a scooter. Get there early because they go fast. We spent 3 hours there and didn't do it all. Not to be missed.

Many years ago we passed thru this quaint Amish community; we didn't have time to visit the Flea Market - but it remained on our bucket list until last week. Sad to say we were very disappointed in what we found. If you are looking for t-shirts, sun glasses and the stuff you can find at a dollar store, it's... More

Lots of vendors, although there are more empty spots each time we go. More and more have the same "Made in China" goods. Would like to see more local craft/goods there. We bought a bunch of plants and some other local items.

We were there the day it opened for the season. Many of the venders were not there, but there was plenty to buy. Always a must in Shipshewana. That is what everyone goes there for the FLEA MARKET!!!
