Omaha’s Farmers Markets has a selection of local produce, bedding plants and fresh-cut flowers, baked goods, meats, cheeses, specialty items, and more from over 120 local vendors. The farmers markets start in May and continues until mid-October.  

The Farmers Markets have been a part of Omaha for 26 seasons. They are located in, the Old Market, Aksarben Village, and Midtown Crossing. 

Omaha Farmers Market was invented in 1964 but revived in 1994 on the very corner lot where the original market thrived. Locally grown produce, baked goods and flowers were once again available each Saturday morning from May to mid-October.  

The Old Market holds their event from 8-12:30 a.m. every Saturday, Aksarben holds theirs from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. The market held in Midtown only occurs the last Friday of every month held from 6-9 p.m.  

Venders can apply online to be a vender at the Farmers Markets. The farmers markets are completely free to go to but consider bringing Reusable bags, cash (smaller bills suggested), containers to carry heavy objects (such as plants, or a wagon or cart). Some venders allow card or check, but there are ATM’s located near all the markets.  

 

Everyone is allowed at the Farmers Markets including pets, but spectators must follow rules in order to keep the markets safe. Pets must always be kept on a leash and by their owners’ side, and lastly, they must be child friendly.
