The Shipshewana Auction & Flea Market is a do-not-miss Hoosier tradition in Indiana's Amish Country. The flea market is the Midwest's Largest with nearly 900 vendor spaces in an open-air market. The Miscellaneous & Antique Auction on Wednesdays offers a huge barn full of hard-to-find items with up to 10 auctioneers simultaneously selling. Find bargains on bags, cell phone accessories, jewelry, leather goods, sunglasses, collectibles, primitives, vintage items, boxed cards, dollar items, party supplies, books, games, puzzles, pet supplies, toys, clothing, food, home decor, gifts, kitchen items, beauty supplies, tools, sporting goods, handmade items, silk flowers, crafts and everything in between. The flea market also has a Farmer's Market aisle with fresh flowers, plants and produce. The Flea Market is open every Tuesday and Wednesday, May through September, from 8 am - 5 pm. The Miscellaneous & Antique Auction is year-round on Wednesdays starting at 9 am. Visitors enjoy great food on site at one of our 4 Food Courts or the indoor, sit-down Auction Restaurant and can stay overnight at the Farmstead Inn, our Amish-inspired hotel. Call us for specific hours and special holiday flea market dates. (Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Labor Day)

Most vendors were selling "home party" merchandise (Pampered Chef, Avon, etc.), new kitchen items, or cheap clothing. There were very few antiques or typical flea market stuff.More
