We spent a afternoon wandering around the Old Market and all the shops in the area. It was exceptionally cold, even for Nebraska so more time was spent in shops than the kids would otherwise like. Definitely a place to putter

If you are traveling to Omaha and looking for an interesting evening or perhaps a weekend afternoon of browsing around then you might check out the Old Market area. It has many unique type shops where one can find popular or interesting type gifts, as well as many establishments should hunger pains start to take over. We like Twisted Fork,... More

What a lovely restoration. After a long work day, the evening stroll up Howard Street and the neighborhood to find a restaurant became my group's MO for the week. It's well lit and we felt very safe. Thank goodness our hotel was close (Embassy Suites); our evening in Old Market became our time to regroup for the next day. Well... More

I was walking around the Old Market with my husband and toddler daughter. We were approached by two separate hobos. Both claimed to be veterans with problems and needed money, but I think they were lying. I also was afraid they or someone else would break into our car. It looked like somebody tried to because someone ran from next... More

There was a fire that has put a damper on the market for a little bit, but, you have to go there anyway. BEST food you'll ever eat, lots of pubs, lots of street performers and places to shop, lots of galleries and local art, and you can take a horse & carriage ride.

Restaurants and shops are what the Old Market is all about - and the restaurants are interesting and the shops... enticing! Several jewelry shops, an art gallery selling beautiful one-of-a-kind pieces, and one clothing emporium were my favorites. It's more fun in the spring than in the winter, but still a place of character and charm. All the shopkeepers mentioned... More

The ambience and experiences afforded in the old market of Omaha are unlimited. For this reason I recently moved here after living in Lincoln Nebraska for many years. I longed for the ability to walk everywhere rather than drive. I am able to do that. Everything I need is literally within 5 miles of my home. Speaking of homes, there... More

A small, walkable area with a number of restaurant and bars. Sadly, I was there the morning after a tragic fire of a great old pub. I would love to experience this area in warner weather because I bet it's great
