Shipshewana

A Shopper's Paradise

Cultures connect … Amish life blends seamlessly with this small town’s modern day mix of commerce and community.

EAT slow roasted beef served family style in the homelike surroundings of the Blue Gate Restaurant. Locals love the palete-pleasing treats at Yoder’s Meat and Cheese and always fresh-from-the-oven JoJo’s Pretzels. Break from shopping (and beat the heat) with an iced latte or topped-to-your-taste frozen yogurt at the Hitching Post.

SHOP the Midwest’s largest Flea Market – it brims with miles of aisles (and bags full of bargains!) May 5 through October 3. From bracelets to banjos, it’s always service with a smile at the Davis Mercantile. Nostalgia comes with every purchase at Yoder’s Shipshewana Hardware and Yoder’s Red Barn Shoppes.

PLAY musical comedies and Grammy-winning performers take the stage at the Blue Gate Theatre. Tour back roads dotted with Amish farms on a Buggy Lane Tour. Ride the 108-year-old Dentzel Carousel at the Davis Mercantile.
