The old market is filled with wonderful restaurants, plus numerous styles of businesses that attract people from all over. The Old Market is a fun place to visit especially during holidays, special events down town and during the college world series. There are serious parking issues, but we've never had to walk more than a couple of blocks to get... More

The Old Market is a great place to visit with art galleries, shops, restaurants and entertainment. There is a great ice cream parlor and cupcake shop. There is an antique store, a sheepskin store and many other unique places to shop. They have horse and carriage rides and musicians on corners playing instruments. It was a sunny Sunday afternoon and... More

There is so much to see, do and eat here - definitely worth the trip. You can easily spend a day or so in this area bouncing in and out of the various shops and eating some great food. Plus now they have some legit coffee shops in the area such as Brew Smith, Aromas & Howlin' Hounds.

The old market is a great place to visit. Anyone not from the area, who is passing through, needs to stop and check this out. There are no drunk roving bands of thugs like a previous review suggested. There are bars there but not only. There are wonderful shops, and great resturaunts. There's a place that makes homemade ice cream.... More

I love the farmers market in the Old Market. I love the shops and restaurants, but the nightlife can get a little overwhelming. By overwhelming, I mean drunk individuals roaming the streets, people looking for a fight, drivers hanging out the window yelling at pedestrians. The nightlife is not what it use to be, it's become a more rough crowd.... More

The Old Market is a real gem! The streets are cobblestone; the buildings are re-purposed warehouses now housing unique shops and restaurants. No national chains allowed. Well worth the visit.

Neat stuff to see around every corner. You can easily spend a few hours taking in the shops (leather goods, candy, holiday, etc.). Love, love Ted and Wally's ice cream, upstream brewery and the variety of places to eat. Right by ConAgra complex and downtown parks. Parking can be a challenge on busy weekends...lots of garages close by so not... More

If you have the time to wonder around or need a lot of dining options then this is the place. Parking is a bit difficult to find but once you do, then enjoy walking around the streets and you will find many places to eat or drink if bars and pubs are your thing.

I've been to the Old Market in Omaha many times and have always enjoyed it. There are plenty of dining choices available from kid friendly Spaghetti Works to the elegant, but wonderful V.Mertz.....and everything in between. One of my favorite places to sit on the patio and have a nice, affordable meal, is Stokes. I wish I had room to... More
