Shipshewana Trading Place Auction & Farmers Market

345 S Van Buren
Shipshewana, IN 46565

Host of the Largest Flea Market in the Midwest, the family-owned Shipshewana Trading Place began in 1922 with an auction of six pigs, seven cows, and several head of young cattle at George Curtis’ home. He then built an auction barn and started the first Auction Restaurant before selling to Fred Lambright, whose descendants own and operate the Trading Place today. Since then, it’s grown to include swap meets, craft and vintage shows, and weekly antique, livestock, and horse auctions. The market has a substantial farmer’s market aisle complete with a variety of plants, fruits, vegetables, baked goods, and artisan products.
