We’re located two miles south of the Indiana Dunes at Lake Michigan, and our Market is easily accessible from Interstate 94 to exit 26A or via the 80/90 Toll Road to exit 31.
Our European Market provides a strong tradition of quality shopping, live entertainment and a festive community experience. Our artists, chefs, merchants and farmers travel to our Market from across Indiana, Michigan and Illinois to offer visitors an extraordinary collection of products and services.
Come visit us, and delight in our artisan breads and pastries, boutique creamery cheeses, ethnic foods, meats, spices, oils, rare books, clothing, accessories, jewelry and fresh-from-the-farm produce and flowers. Spend the day, and enjoy live performances from the best of Duneland’s professional musicians.
