Things To Do
There are so many wonderful places to visit and fun things to do in our area!
SHOPPING & DINING
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.
SHIPSHEWANA FLEA MARKET
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.
Dutch Creek Farm Animal Park – Just 10 minutes from downtown Shipshewana, take a safari-style wagon ride through the farm and feed the exotic animals!
