contentsGoshen IN Chamberads



Historic Downtown Goshen, listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1983, sits at the heart of the community. This vibrant shopping district is brimming with a wide selection of unique boutiques, antique and collectible shops, galleries and an eclectic mix of restaurants. Many of the businesses located downtown have been around for decades, including the Nut Shoppe, a favorite stopping place for hand-dipped chocolates, homemade caramels, chocolate turtles and other tasty treats.

Located within a downtown historic structure dating back to 1896, the Old Bag Factory is teeming with a selection of handmade treasures, ranging from stained glass, quilts and ironware to fresh baked goods. The complex also welcomes patrons to view artists at work, including nationally renowned artisans at the John Mishler Sculpture Studio and Lehman-Goertzen Pottery.

Also downtown is the Mill Race Market Center, a busy place every Saturday (year-round) and Tuesday (from May-October), as it hosts the Goshen Farmers Market. This local market is chock full of fresh fruits and vegetables, jams and jellies, baked goods, plants and flowers, artwork and a host of handmade items, all of which come from Goshen’s local farmers and artisans.

Just outside of downtown is Linway Plaza, a fantastic destination for dining and entertainment. The plaza is composed of a local cinema and eateries including the Dutch Maid Bakery, a more than 65-year-old retail and wholesale bakery. Further nearby shopping centers include the Village at Winona in Winona Lakes and the Concord Mall in Elkhart.
