We went to Omaha for a long weekend at the zoo with young children. We ended up eating dinner in the Old Market neighborhood just so I could say we went there. We only walked down 2 blocks, since the kids were worn out after a long day at the zoo, but I simply loved the feel of the area.... More

This is the reason why I visited, and I was not disappointed. The buildings and brick streets make this a very charming area. There are very many shops and restaurants in this area. The bars are open late, but not rowdy.

The Old Market is my favorite place in Omaha. It's cobblestone streets and old renovated buildings give it character. There are numerous places to dine and good shopping. It has adequate parking with a parking garage nearby.

I used to live in Omaha and moved away in the later 90's, and the Old Market at the time was definitely NOT what it is today. There are so many unique shops, restaurants, and bars, that I so wish it was like this when I lived there! You really get that "downtown city" feel, with brick streets, and little... More

Enjoyed lots of restaurants. Seems like there were fewer cool shops than there used to be (15 years ago). Definitely worth spending some time there.

What a charming area. Lots of neat shops, restaurants and bars. I could of spent a lot more time here, if I wouldn't have spent all day at the zoo. Plan on coming back for longer next time

Using the market as a sort of base of operations, you can easily spend a delightful day in downtown Omaha. Interesting shops and a wide variety of restaurant types, you can have two good meals, shopping, great hiking or biking along the riverfront, and the Lewis and Clark landing and museum all the same locale. And then nightlife if you... More

The Old Market was begun in the 1970's. It had been warehouses and those were converted to retail shopping and restaurants. Now there are beautiful condos which surround it.

there were so many options. Great for those that like to wander and find all kinds of little shops in corners and nooks.
