Omaha Farmers Market Guide

Village Pointe Farmers Market

  • 168th & Dodge streets | Village Pointe Shopping Center
  • Saturdays, through Oct. 2 | 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

If you are searching for a grower’s market — that is, a farmers market in Omaha that does not feature crafts or processed foods but relies solely on home-grown, edible or plant-able goodness — check out the Village Pointe Farmers Market. A great hidden gem awaits you in the southeast parking lot behind Old Navy in the Village Pointe Shopping Center. Because the only thing better than dining outside is shopping for food outside.

Here, you can expect locally sourced foods, mostly from family farms throughout Nebraska, Iowa and South Dakota. And while not all the food is organic, most of it is natural, chemical-free and a product of sustainable agriculture. Moreover, this market is one of the few in town that requires GMO labeling.

If you live in West Omaha, have a hunger for fresh, local foods and can attend safely, the Village Pointe Farmers Market is for you. Face masks are not required, but they are highly encouraged.
