Old Market is an adorable collection of unique stores in downtown Omaha. These are the kind of stores I love -- antique stores, bakeries, one-of-a-kind clothing stores, etc. I personally got great deals at Homer's Music, Jackson Street Booksellers, as well as a little thrift/antique shop (next to The Diner) whose name I can't remember. Met some very interesting and... More

Loved the historical view of this place, they have few restaurants around that place. pretty small, nothing much for a traveler but a must go place to spend couple hours if you are in town. They have a great Candy store out there, few boutiques looked more like I entered a Antique store. Nice place to walk around near the... More

Something for everyone in the Old Market area. Great restaurants, shops, breweries, galleries and historical landmarks. Plenty of parking. Might be a little unwieldy for handicapped due to uneven walkways and brick streets. Plan ahead for dining and make reservations.

An historic part of Omaha that is full of great places to eat, interesting shopping and a gallery or two. During the late spring and early fall, the area hosts an incredible Farmers' Market on Saturdays. This is one event not to miss. The variety of fresh farm produce, including fresh cheese is quite incredible. There are also provisions such... More

Girl's Getaway Weekend…we were looking forward to shopping in the Old Market area since it was so close to our hotel. The restaurants were wonderful…a real plus…but not the shopping!

There are like 30 restaurants in this beautiful old part of Omaha, so choosing is difficult, But don't miss the antique shops and the emporium - entertaining and you must might find a bargin or two along the way. Cobblestone streets, beautiful old warehouses - it's a treasure.

I love the little businesses that are locally owned. Great local artists and creative items for sale. Shops are easy to walk to and see a wide variety of types of merchandise.

Great escape from the typical boring suburban strip mall for sure! My husband and I love to come down here, though of late we have not been able to since we recently had a baby. But we still love the OM for its charm, unique and quirky shops, top-notch restaurants and cobblestone streets. For a great steak dinner, I highly... More
