I enjoy the Flea Market every time I've been. This time I was a little disappointed. Not by the Flea market itself but by all the empty spaces! A sad sign of hard economic times! Glad to see some places are still surviving.

visited the shipshewana flea market on a hot day in august. although there were a lot of shops many were not what you would expect. a large number sold cheap goods or items that you could easily find in any Walmart or Target, the few shops that sold unique goods were extremely expensive. i would recommend visiting for 30-45 minutes...

I was disappointed in this flea market. It is huge, but did not meet my expectations for yardsale/ antique vendors and home made foods. There are some stalls with Amish made or antique-y stuff, but there were so many selling plastic stuff, designer bag knock offs, hobo bags, and scarves just like you find walking along any big city street....

The grounds are extensive and there are a lot of vendors. A lot of the items are repetitive. If you've never been to a flea market this is a good one to visit, but wear your walking shoes. Parking is $3 per vehicle.

What a huge disappointment. Sure--the place is IMMENSE--but 95% full of booths of cheap dollar store merchandise and overstock merchandise. The place could be amazing if stocked with merchants/artists/sellers of antiques/collectibles/handcrafted/artist items. The only places we spent money were Ben's Pretzels (WOW--great!) and one of the Amish food stands for noodles, baked goods and jam. Save your $3 parking fee... More

the weather forecast said intermittent rain, but it was more inter than mittent. This Tuesday, the rain supposedly kept many of the vendors from setting up on time. I had marked up my map with the 25 page vendor directory, and had everything planned, but half of the vendors weren't there, or didn't set up. Another quarter ended up covering... More

My family and I traveled a long ways because my mother once visited it 20 years ago. So we decided to make it a stop on our vacation. We got there to find it was just tacky junk. Literally. Just T-shirts Shoes and random stuff for cheap. Although there were a few cool sites. But no. Dont come here unless... More
