OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — The 2019 season of the Omaha Farmers Market has been announced, along with the return of the Night Market series.

Omaha's farmers market features locally-grown produce, flowers, bedding plants, herbs, meats, cheeses, breads, jams, jellies, various specialty items and more. Visitors can expect to see local street performers and representatives of different community organizations, according to a press release from Kylie Vonnahme.

“Omaha Farmers Market began in 1994 as a small group of vendors in the Old Market, and it continues to grow even as it nears the start of its 26th season,” said Vic Gutman, Executive Director. “Now the Old Market location features more than 90 vendor booths each week; the Sunday Market more than 120; and our newest market, Night Market, has more than 35. Each market has its own personality and the mix of vendors changes each time to ensure no two visits are alike.”

The farmers market returns on Saturday, May 4 in the Old Market (11th and Jackson Streets) and Sunday, May 5 in Aksarben Village (67th and Center streets). This will run for 24 consecutive weekends in 2019, through October 13.

The Night Market offers a marketplace with a wide selection of eclectic handmade and up-cycled goods. This market includes a Cocktail Patio and food courtesy of Midtown Crossing restaurants. Live music from BluesEd will be featured. The Night Market will take place from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. the last Friday of each month from May through September.
