Over the years, the Omaha Farmers Market in the downtown Old Market district has become an important tradition and economic fixture of the city. On 11th Street, between Jackson and Howard Streets, vendors sell their goods at the same site where growers sold their fruit, vegetables, herbs, plants and all sorts of fresh produce almost a century ago. This year’s Farmers Market season opens on Saturday, May 1, occurring each Saturday from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., until Oct. 9. As always, the Farmers Market will feature fresh, healthy produce, high-quality herbs, pre-packaged foods, prepared foods and crafts. For COVID-19 safety measures, the first hour of the market is reserved for seniors, people with underlying health conditions, and expectant mothers, and the use of face masks is encouraged.
