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!

Many small shops and restaurants in a nicely restored section of town. It sort of reminded me of Pioneer Square in Seattle. Worth a visit if you are in town.

I enjoyed walking around this area a lot. It's pretty. The weather happened to be pretty nice when I was there, so I was able to really spend a lot of time there, enjoying the scenery and people-watching. There are some interesting shops there, and some great restaurants.

Hadn't been in Omaha or the Old Market in over 40 years. Still the same, just bigger. Lot's of little shops and many restaurants. Check out TA reviews as they vary quite a bit. We ate at "M"s bar and grill. You won't be disappointed. Good food; reasonable price; good service.

Parking is not good at all. Like the Tea Tree and also the antique/ old fashion candy store. Would have liked to see more shops and we are not interested in the bar scenes in which their was to many with kids around.
