Recently went to Amish country in Northern Indiana. Saw the villages of Shipshewana, Goshen, Middlebury, Nappinee and places in between. Lovely countryside, and a wonderful look into a very unique people. In shipshewanna, we were mesmerized by the many shops and restaurants. Very touristy, but fun. If you are not into the tourist thing, peruse the picturesque countryside dotted with... More

I am by no stretch of imagination a shopper, much less a flea market shopper. But I was so impressed by the offerings and prices here I had to make a trip to the ATM to refill my wallet and my wife had to keep making trips back to our truck to stow our purchases. We only got thru 1/2... More

Take a glimpse into the Amish and Mennonite ways of life. You can walk around town the storesare close to each other. Sit down and have a family style dinner. Take a horsedrawn buggy ride. Watch how hard the Amish work. There are farms in the area that you can visit and learn about the Amish farms. The flea market... More

This flea market is so large that I just saw about 1/3 of it. There were many booths that were selling new products. It was not the type of flea market that I enjoy looking for good buys on used items.

We visited this past Oct 2014 as we had in the past years. First bad sign - Prepared with parking money in hand there was no one there to collect sign. Second bad sign - nearly all the stall vendors were selling chink junk. Third bad sign - virtually no one at the auction barn. We bought some Amish groceries... More

This is the best flea market I have ever been to. Have been 2 times and not disappointed either time, Always find something, and everything I am looking for. Be prepared to spend the whole day, it is worth it.

We visited last summer when we were already in the area visiting my extended family. I thought there was a good mix of vendors, food and non-food, old and new, clothes and household. In my hometown (Virginia Beach, VA) we have several out door festivals. I found similar items at the Shipshe flea market (dresses, jewelry, bags, etc) that the... More

It was not really a flea market. I was expecting home made goods from local vendors, hopefully some antiques or old junk from the area. Instead it was the world's largest dollar store with new junk made in China. I read that this was the best flea market in the midwest. We heard from some folks in South Bend that... More

We visit the flea market about every other year. It's still a fun experience. You have to visit in spring or September when the kids are in school (otherwise the place is mobbed). Summer is hot and dusty. Sept you find some great deals on fruits and veges. The market itself has some repeats when it comes to the vendors,... More
