Happy National Corn on the Cob Day!

Lend us your ears, proclaims today’s news — with melted butter: The city tells probation officers to steer clear of home visits, Taste of North Omaha will offer COVID-19 vaccinations, and the weekend promises summer fun, from garage sales to the U.S. Olympic Swim Trials.

Omaha Farmers Market Guide

Omaha Farmers Market in Baxter Arena
2425 S. 67th St. | Parking Lot 26 (across from Aksarben Village)
Sundays, through Oct. 10 | 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.

In 2010, the second Omaha Farmers Market opened in Aksarben Village, expanding the city’s tradition of centering community on local foods, crafts and live music. This year, it has begun a small-scale return, moving from its usual location to Parking Lot 26, outside Baxter Arena.

Visitors can expect some of the same excellent vendors from Saturday’s Old Market location, in addition to other Sunday-exclusive vendors, spaced out to observe social distancing and provide an intimate experience. Folks who attend both days will get the best of both worlds.

Note that no animals are allowed on the market’s premises, except, of course, for service animals. There is handicapped parking available in customer parking lots 25 and 26.
