A Shopper's Paradise

Browse and Buy
Shipshewana is a bustling village with quaint shop-lined streets, specialty retailers and home-style dining. Shoppers search for handcrafted items, baked goods and whatnot behind picturesque turnof-the-century storefronts. The Midwest’s largest flea market brims with bargains and hundreds of vendors. Livestock and antique auctions attract serious buyers and the simply curious.

Relax and Recharge
Horse-pulled buggy rides through town and into the countryside are a welcome diversion for weary feet. A strong Amish culture ensures a family-friendly atmosphere and closed shops on Sunday. Families will enjoy the restored 1906 Carousel at the Davis Mercantile, the tornado experience at Menno-Hof and the world’s largest collection of classic Hudson Autos at the museum.
