Midwest's Largest Flea Market - Shipshewana, Indiana

FREQUENTLY ASKED SHIPSHEWANA FLEA MARKET COVID 19 QUESTIONS:

DO I HAVE TO WEAR A MASK? The state of Indiana is HIGHLY recommending the wearing of masks when in public, therefore, we are HIGHLY recommending the wearing of masks when in public although it is Not required.

HOW WILL YOU ENFORCE SOCIAL DISTANCING? We will be monitoring the traffic and dispersing parking across the market when attendance is higher, however, it will be up to each shopper, vendor and guest to help one another socially distance. Be courteous to each other and maintain that 6' distance for everyone's safety.

HOW MANY VENDORS DO YOU HAVE COMING? Typically we are at about 75% occupancy mid-May, this year we will be more around 50% so we encourage you to walk the entire market to be sure you don't miss anyone as they will be spread farther apart than usual during this unique time.

MORE HELPFUL TIPS:

Refrain from handling items/products you do not intend to purchase (especially produce/pre-packaged food items in the Farmer's Market)

Be patient as vendors may ask you to wait to enter their booth space, or you may have to enter a space at a later time due to ability to keep social distance in each individual market space.

Cover your cough, wash hands FREQUENTLY, don't touch your face and follow all state guidance for your safety regarding COVID-19.

Ultimately, your safety is in your hands, if you don't feel comfortable with a situation you see, simply remove yourself from it and always feel free to inform a member of our team. We'll be happy to listen and do our best to improve on any situation we can within our abilities.
