OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — After taking a year off because of the pandemic, Omaha’s Night Market Finally welcomed back vendors and fresh food lovers at Turner Park.

3 News Now reporter Jessika Eidson was there to see what the market had to offer.

More than 40 local vendors were on hand with everything from succulents to cocktail mixes, to dog treats — there was something for everyone.

"We’re hopeful that people enjoy the sense of community," said Amanda Lustgraaf, marketing communications coordinator with Midtown Crossing. "That we’re able to gather again in a safe comfortable outdoor environment and bring people back together.”

What makes the market special is the lively atmosphere. Not only are you able to support local businesses, but you can also enjoy some music and spirits while you do it.

“The night market is definitely more of a party atmosphere than the Saturday or Sunday market," said the event marketing coordinator, Maggie Winton.

Friday night’s entertainment included performers from the nonprofit program called Blues Ed.

The market will be open every other Friday until September 10. It is free, open to the public, and dog friendly.
