OMAHA FARMERS MARKET TO OPEN FIRST WEEKEND IN JUNE

WITH SAFETY REGULATIONS IMPLEMENTED ADMIST THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC

 

(OMAHA, Neb.) April 8, 2020 – As COVID-19 has become an evolving and uncertain public health issue affecting people globally and, in the community, the Omaha Farmers Market is following the guidance of the City of Omaha and Douglas County Health Department. 

 

With recommendations from the Douglas County Health Department, the Market will open the first weekend in June rather than the traditional first weekend in May with extra safety measures and regulation guidelines put into place. The Market’s number one priority is the safety and wellbeing of vendors, market staff/volunteers, and customers. 

 

The Omaha Farmers Market will continue to operate on Saturdays in the Old Market and Sundays in Aksarben Village, although the location in each district may change to accommodate social distancing requirements.Additional information and resources will be available on the Omaha Farmers Market website in the near future www.omahafarmersmarket.org.

About the Omaha Farmers Market

The Omaha Farmers Market is managed by Omaha Public Market, Inc., a 501 (C)(6) not for profit organization and supported by Friends of the Omaha Farmers Market, a 501 (C)(3) not for profit organization. 

 

The concept of an open-air market in downtown Omaha dates back nearly 100 years to the corner of 11th and Jackson Streets. This was the site of Omaha’s “City Market”, a popular market that local grocers relied on for their produce and fresh goods. The “City Market” closed in 1964, and the Omaha Farmers Market was established 30 years later in 1994 in the exact corner lot where the original market thrived. In 2010, another opportunity to buy fresh and shop local opened on Sundays in Aksarben Village.
