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)

This place has everything from local craftsman to a fair amount of just regular retail items. In general, the prices seem very good. The sheer size of this place can be daunting. But it is fun.

There is not much shade and no breeze on a hot day here. The food courts fill quick and drinks are pricey. The flea market has a lot of stuff, but kind of lacking in variety as big as it is. Good deals all around...More

I was under the impression that there were going to be a lot of Amish made items. There were very few of those and a lot of junk, like a huge garage sale. Don't waste your time.

There is so much to see. They offer everything a regular flea market offers and then some. The auction was fun. Don't get too carried away in the thrill.

Lots of vendors here. There is a big variety, thats for sure. Not sure I found a lot of great deals though. Very crowded for a Tuesday.

The day is just for fun and a bit of shopping. We've gone to the flea market every year for over a two decades. The vendors have improved over the past few years. The flea market is not the antique & shabby eclectic "junque" type....More
