Just minutes from Fort Wayne off I-69, Markle is an inviting small town situated alongside the beautiful Wabash River. Don’t let our small size fool you because we have some awesome reasons why you should make a trip to come see us.


Antique lovers, make sure you put Markle on your list of stops. With over 21,000 square feet of merchandise, Exit 286 Markle Antique Mall is one of the largest antique malls in NE Indiana. While in town, pop into Mazie’s Flowers, a charming shop filled with flowers, home decor, jewelry and gift items and pick up some “scotcharoos” from Nadean’s Cakes/Cookies/Catering a few doors down. The Bread Guy opens several days a week for their Markle Outlet so make sure you stock up on your favorites including breads, bagels, pretzels and more.


Who doesn’t love venturing to a small town to experience the food? Spend an evening at The Pickle…not only is it the coolest place to hang out in the evening, but their food is fantastic. Grab a pizza or one of their huge smothered baked potatoes. Vinatelli’s Italian Cafe has won our hearts with their pizza and entrees but don’t miss out on the garlic knots! Bring the family in for breakfast at the Markle Pancake House for their fluffy buttermilk pancakes or fruity waffles. Enjoy pub grub and a drink at Koozie's, located right downtown.


A true gem in Markle is the Markle Fish and Game Park. Baseball diamonds, playgrounds, basketball courts, 18 hole disc golf and tennis/pickleball courts await you. Take time to walk their riverside trail. Forget the typical community swimming pool! Markle Pool is a slam dunk when it comes to fun beaches. This historic quarry was transformed years ago into one of the area's favorite swimming locations and attracts visitors from all over the region. Try out their super big slide! Coming soon: watch for details on their new concert stage with "Second Friday" free concerts through the summer.
