    There are over a thousand booths……some duplication of vendors but there is lots and lots of produce…….plants…….flowers…….trees……besides a few antiques. It a fun inexpensive way to spend the day. You pay to park but not to shop.

    It is a fun place to go.Leave your car in one spot.The area gets very very busy.Then wear comfortable shoes because you will be doing a lot of walking.They have one of the best bulk stores; Yoders. As always respect the Amish , the picture thing gets out of hand alot. Shipshewana is about itwo hours from Chicago via the Indiana Toll Road. A great daycation.

    A flea market was instrumental in the revival of my NJ hometown. Unfortunately the McMansions moved in and the flea market was done away with.

    I went to the Shipshewana flea market when it was in its prime–no commercialization, no outside vendors, when it truly seemed like an Amish place. There were lots and lots of buggies there. There were true antiques–none of this cotton candy stuff. I used to live in northern Indiana–the freshest air you’ll ever find. I went there with my parents when I was back visiting. It was probably in the 1960’s.
