The Haymarket Farmers’ Market serves as one of Lincoln’s main social and culinary events. It is a place where people gather to shop, meet with friends, and exchange ideas and recipes and to plan the perfect feast. Farmers’ Market is ever changing in its effort to present an enormous array of fresh locally grown produce and farm produced products. The Market 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 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.
