The flea market has so much to offer with a wide variety of vendors to chose from. My daughter and I map out the vendors we specifically want to visit the day before. We always come home with plenty of treasures.

We went the last days for outdoor flea market. Sept 25th,26th. Even though it rained a bit we had a great time. Uneven walking on gravel so warning for those who find that difficult. They do have scooters to rent. Many tents were closed but...More

The flea market is big, no doubt. Like all flea markets there were some good deals, some not so good. You must be willing to barter to get a good price. Nothing out of the ordinary.

The flea market is huge, guess that’s why so many people were using scooters. Honestly a lot of the same stuff in booths, knockoffs, bins of stuff, etc. I was hoping for more handmade and quality items. Did have some nice fresh food & plants.

Glad you enjoyed the farmer's market aisle. We do appreciate the feedback on wanting more handmade items...next season, we are working on a handmade trail which will showcase the vendors who do have the unique items. Hope you come back and shop!

The flea market is what attracted us to go to shipshewana. We were somewhat disappointed with what we saw. Some may love it, we didn’t. Too big for our liking.More

We appreciate you taking the time to check out our flea market! We're sad that you did not love the huge size of the market as so many others do. Next season, we are working on some "trails" which would highlight specific vendors - maybe...More

We went to the Flea market late in the afternoon. One of the first booths one sees after the entrance is "Trading place rentals" which rents scooters and rolling wagons. I thought that was a positively brilliant idea. There seems to be a lot of...More

This is my first time at the flea markets and there are so many things to look at. Also it has an easy lay out. Some of the same vendors selling the same things was the only negative thing.

Thanks for your review! Glad you enjoyed your day. We allow our vendors to sell anything and everything, so unfortunately, that means some vendors will have repeat products, although we try to spread them out throughout the market. Hope to see you again in Shipshewana.

This flea market has a lot of varied merchandise and I found that the vendors were very nice and loved to talk about their products.

Nowhere is open on Sunday. Think extended flea market is Tues, Wed and Thursday for the 4th. Or Mon-Wed. They always extend it near a holiday. Just never on Sunday.
