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

First time there and loved it! The chocolate shop and the souvenir shop connected on the side were both fabulous! Try the peanut butter fluffy bars and the oreo cream cheese balls! They are good! Friendly people and the t-shirts in the bag are reasonably priced! Thank you for that as without such a good deal, we would have had... More

If you are in a hurry you may want to go somewhere else it is best enjoyed on a day with no schedule where you can just enjoy... More

Kudos Omaha. This area is what every old depressed section in cities should be trying to do. I tourist destination in itself. You can just wander for blocks drooling at the foods and drinks on some else's table. So hard to make a decision. We landed at J's on Jackson and just loved it. Sit outside if you can under... More

I have gone twice to Old Market. First time I went was a Monday, which is not a good day to go because many places are closed. It was also St. Patrick's Day, so there were several drunk people wandering the sidewalks. The second time I went was a Saturday & it was very lively. Many places to stop &... More

Almost didn't take the time to check out the old market but SO glad I did. The farmers market was in full swing with local produce, art pieces, and plenty of other food goodies to sample and buy. Picked up some pasta as well as sampled a few things. Even got to see some street performers, a juggler and another... More

I grew up in the Omaha area and the Old Market was always an important destination. It has great places to eat and shop and explore. A must if you have the time.

I'm so glad we were in town while the market was open! There was a little bit of everything. We also loved visiting all the shops on Sunday morning. The variety of restaurants and bars was excellent. A must visit while in Omaha!

If you are visiting Omaha, you cannot miss Old Market. The food is fabulous anywhere you go. Nightime, after dark, is funnest. There are carriage rides and outdoor patios. It feels like you are in a different country. Very hard to believe you are in Nebraska!
