Connecting with food and the experts

The Village Pointe Farmers Market strives to be a farmer friendly farmers market, which is one of the reasons our customers love our market so much – not only are they connected with great food, but they have the opportunity to meet the experts who grew their food.

Started in 2005, Village Pointe Farmers Market was and remains the only farmers market in West Omaha. Every week, we average 18 individual farmers, ranchers and producers from the Omaha area, not to mention a local bakery and several cottage food vendors.

Each season, we include new vendors but our core group of farmers and ranchers remains the same and it’s that consistency that has cemented our place in the community. Our customers can count on fresh veggies, local eggs and meats all season long, tomatoes in the summer, as well as fruits, sweet potatoes and apples in the fall. 

2020 was definitely the most challenging year for our market. Several vendors took the season off. Still, most of our farmers continued to show up. We were even able to extend our season by one week due to vendor and customer demand. 

This year, we will feature First Saturdays special events with locally made craft and food items, as well as balloon creations for kids of all ages, kettle corn and live music throughout our season.

As we enter the second month of this season, we are excited to see our regulars as well as new families enjoy our market!

We are open every Saturday through October 2nd, 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. with the first hour reserved for our senior citizens, those who are immune compromised, or expectant mothers. We will post vendor schedules and special events weekly on our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages.
