The Omaha Farmer’s Markets kick off this weekend. The markets offer attendees a variety of items, including local produce, flowers, meat, and cheese. Project Manager Heidi Walz says there are also local vendors with non-food items, including handcrafted jewelry and wooden toys.
This year’s downtown Omaha Farmer’s Market will feature 110 vendors. The Farmer’s Market at Aksarben Village has expanded to 75 vendors. Walz says the mission of the markets goes back to community, and that’s why they accept SNAP cards at all their locations.
