The Flea Market is a good mix of junk, import stuff, antiques, and nice arts and crafts. You have a bit of everything to sift through. I showed up about an hour later than I would have liked. It opened at 8 the day we were there and I ended up getting there at 9, which means heavy traffic. Parking is $5, but there was no entry fee. There is a good change you will find something of interest, but I walked out empty handed. My partner and her sister got some crafty stuff. There the usual food stalls too, if interested. The place was heaving with people when I left at noon. Not a bad morning.

Yes, the flea market is huge, but there is no variety. Almost every single vendor sells either dollar store junk, cheap quality clothing, or made in china county decor items. There is very few booths of flea market items. They do have a farmer's market area with produce and plants. They only charge for parkin, not each person's entry.$5 isn't too bad. There are concession stands with covered seating, bathrooms and shade placed about every 2-3 rows and spaced out very well. That is really nice about the market.
The parking is ample and easy. The road that goes in front of the market is not made to handle the traffic at all. Bring your patience to come and go from the market. You will be sitting in traffic. There are some hotels, restaurants, and shops along the road as well. The town area has lots of cute shops as well to visit.

We went one of their weekend flea market days. Friday, there was only a handful of people there. Many of the booths were closed but, still , we couldn't get through it all in 4 hours!
I was told by a bender the place was empty because it was so hot (85*).
We did not like the sandwiches at the pavilion , seems it was a little stale at $6. And we did NOT see any "restaurant within the fleamarket".

Local, in town Resturants were packet during during meal times....apparently by locals so,plan to go on off hours.

Went nearing the end of the season but still majority of vendors still there. you can find just about everything imaginable, new or used at huge flea markets and this place is no different in that sense. as the saying goes..one mans junk is another mans treasure. you can definitely find something here for all ages but wear walking shoes for sure. parking is plentiful and most have fun walking from row to row of vendors goods. Yoders meat and cheese shop at the front of the flea market is a longtime staple of Shipshewana with wonderful fresh meats, salsas, jellies and baked goods..great prices.

Disappointed in the flea market as many of the vendors are selling items from the dollar tree. Not my idea of a flea market. The auction is fine. Like any auction it’s hit and miss. I wouldn’t rush back here or even recommend it.

This venue is HUGE....Do as much or as little as you please. Parking is reasonable at $5 per car. As with anything else prices fluctuate either good or bad. Quite the assortment of items -- not sure how much genuine Amish items are displayed. Needing some lunch I tried a chef salad which was freshly prepared by the nicest Amish ladies at one of the food stands, it was very good and they certainly didn't skimp on the cheese. Be aware many places are cash only-
Next time maybe a visit on a day the markets closed. It would make cheese shopping easier.🧀🧀🧀

Wow, this place is huge! There were a lot of repeat items/vendors. Still my friends and family enjoyed getting some bargains on some things and tasty treats. I'd go back if it were a little cooler. It was so hot and sticky the day we went in June.

Your insight is quite right, it is huge and if you haven't tried mapping out your visit with our online directory, that may help you with navigating the vendors and your visit especially on those hot summer days. Thanks again and we'd love to welcome you again on your return visit to the area.

Great flea market lots of walking and it is outside. Definitely worth a visit. Plan on at least two hours maybe a little more to see everything here. There is also a restaurant within walking distance to the parking lot

We got to the flea market around 8:30. My husband cannot walk well, so I went to the booth that rents the scooters. They were all gone, but they said to put my name on the list and they would call when one was available. About 45 minutes later, I walk to the booth to see where I stood on the list. There were about 10 scooters in the booth. People were filling paperwork out and being assigned a scooter. I went into the booth to ask if these people were on the list because I was and if a scooter was ready. The lady was very very rude. Told me to "get out of the booth". I said, well, I just wanted to know if you were planning on calling me. She yelled again, to "get out of the booth". So rude! Won't go back, and we drove 3 hours to get there. And $5 to park is absoutely riduculous! If you are counting on a scooter to rent, GOOD LUCK!

So sorry your visit expectations were not met with this encounter. If ever you do give us another visit, you can reserve scooters ahead of time by calling their reservation number and if you ever have any trouble you can also always check in at the market office for assistance too.

I live about an hour and fifteen minutes away from the Shipshewana Flea Market. I have to take off work to go on a Tuesday or Wednesday, the days they're open weekly from May through September. It's worth it! I love going with a friend or two and spending the day. There are other fun things to do nearby. I can't wait until summer comes around again!
