We were there on a Saturday night and it was vey busy. We are not from a city and the meters and paid parking was a learning curve. Most restaurants were very busy and we ended up waiting 30 minutes for a table. The area was clean and felt safe. I would love to go back and explore it again. There are tons of restaurants and shops to explore.

If you're in Omaha for a short visit, plan an afternoon stroll in the Old Market area. Lots of creative shops focused on local artists. Plenty of restaurants to choose. If that's your thing, then Old Market is for you. LGBTQ and pet friendly.

Cute cobblestone streets with restaurants & shops. Near hotels and entertainment venues as well. Even bustling during the pandemic! Most places ask you wear a mask when entering but outside seems optional.

What is going on in Omaha? The old market is where many homeless people are"living". It is not a safe area at all. I'm mad and sad at the same time. Is the city just ignoring this population of people? This was in the winter (February) and it was so cold. We had an incident in our Old Market hotel where a homeless person had gotten into the hotel stairway via the parking garage and started a fire. He was so cold. Having young kids there playing volleyball at the CHI Event Center, the kiddos wanted to explore Old Market, but it was not safe. I personally was confronted by a mentally ill man who got agitated because he thought I was ignoring him but I could not understand him. People leave leftover food on top of the trash containers for the homeless.

If we learned nothing else about Omaha, we found out that this is a foodies' town! We had some amazing meals in the Old Market area. Trinins Mexican, Nicholi's Italian, JAMS for brunch, La Buvette for wine and cheese and The Brownie Bar for dessert! All delicious!!!! Shops are limited and this area is still coming into itself. Omaha is doing a nice job of making this a destination.

As a person who lives hours away, I’ve been coming to the Old Market since the late 90’s. It never gets old. The food, the restaurants, everything is still beautiful in the old market. I love the smallness of the lil area. Hotels are within walking distance should you choose to spend the night.

They lit up the trees for the holidays. It feels magical. No picture can do it justice.

We came into town on a Sunday so not everything was open (and it is COVID) but we still had a great time walking around, drinking and eating. This place would be a blast next summer when COVID is over and on a Friday or Saturday when everything is open. There are so many shops, galleries, antique stores, etc. so much to do, see, eat, and drink.

We spent an evening walking thru here and enjoyed it. A few stores were faves. One has a blast from past that my family ages 14-67 enjoyed. There was reminders from all of our childhoods. Very fun and worth a walk. Can’t remember the name but Donald Duck statue held door open. We didn’t get to see all stores but it was fun to explore some. Streets and store fronts are made or restored as originals from 1920s. Was really cool place to take a break from the long drive.

Our hotel was situated on the edge of the Old Market area. The area has numerous drinking and eating establishments as well as numerous specialty stores. I was in a wheelchair that was difficult to push due to uneven sidewalks. The store items were rather expensive, but unique! It is worth visiting but plan on only a few hours needed to explore.

New to Omaha. Upon our arrival we made a list of things to do & see. I can assure you. Visiting Old Market was very disappointing. I found it tasteless, dirty & to be honest. We found to be an utter waste of our time. O reason to ever go bk.
