Things To Do

There are so many wonderful places to visit and fun things to do in our area! 


Harrison Street and Morton Street in Shipshewana are where it’s at! Tons of little shops offering gifts, antiques, fun decor, clothing, etc. – all walkable! At Davis Mercantile, you can grab a “JoJo’s” pretzel or a quick bite at Millie’s Market, browse the unique shops with amish-made furniture and gifts, and then head upstairs with the littles to the carousel and toy store. Across the alley, don’t miss Cherry Pickers for some one-of-a-kind custom and antique finds. You can grab lunch or an amazing cupcake at Shawna Rae’s Cafe, or sit down for a family-style meal at the Blue Gate restaurant, then take a carriage ride through town!

Also, don’t miss Yoder’s Department Store, Yoders Red Barn, and Yoder’s Meat & Cheese – all on Van Buren as you drive into or out of town. Also, Ben’s Pretzel & E&S grocery store. Sample some popcorn at Yoder Popcorn, or sit down for a filling lunch at Corn Crib Cafe both located at the corner of 5 and 20.


The hours may not be too convenient for weekend visits, but if you’d like to extend your trip & take advantage of the deals & steals, the Shipshewana Flea Market is open every Tuesday and Wednesday from May through September from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Special holiday openings include Memorial Day, 4th of July and Labor Day, as well as a few weekend markets on select dates.
