Haymarket Farmers’ Market Returns as Focal Social, Culinary Event Through October
The Haymarket Farmers’ Market (lincolnhaymarket.org) has returned, and it lives up to its name each Saturday morning as farm fresh produce, flowers, baked goods, and handmade items from over 100 vendors are sold on the streets and sidewalks. The Farmers’ Market serves as one of Lincoln’s main social and culinary events every Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon, May 7 through October 15th. It is a place where people gather to shop, meet with friends, and exchange ideas and recipes to plan the perfect feast. The Haymarket Farmers’ Market is ever-changing in its effort to present an enormous array of fresh locally grown produce and farm produced products. It displays glorious flowers, delicious bakery items, and Nebraska arts and crafts. You will find baskets and tables overflowing with wonderful products that you can only find on Saturday mornings in this historic district.
The Haymarket District awakes early on Farmers’ Market Saturdays to take part in the market day festivities. Many of the restaurants and retail stores open early offering a unique selection of food, antiques, clothing, and specialty gifts. It is a grand display of how rural and urban businesses can work together to offer a rich shopping experience.
The Market boasts a “Performance Showcase” program. Featured are both local and Nebraska talent performing folk, jazz, blues, classical, and dance. It is indeed a delight to applaud these talented artists. Farmers’ Market also offers educational demonstrations to inform customers and vendors about various programs like nutrition and aging. There are also many civic organizations that hand out information and give demonstrations at the Market.
Returning market managers include Linda Hubka as the Market’s vendors relations manager and Jeff Cunningham as the Market’s business manager. They are happy to provide any additional information needed. Feel free to contact Linda or Jeff at the Haymarket office, (402) 435-7496.
