Florence Mill Farmers Market

The Florence Mill Farmers Market is Omaha's only market situated outside and inside a historic agricultural-site, with an adjoining field too. Besides fresh, local produce and crafts, it is a perfect location for a family-friendly, fun, country-market.

Each Sunday: Live music and "Country-School" educational presenters. First Sundays: Pony Rides, Giant Bubbles, Miss Joan Craft-Table, "Ring of Flutes." Second and Third Sundays: Old-fashioned Bluegrass circle-jam. Join the fun, bring your instrument! Fourth Sundays: Omaha Dulcimer Club

The Florence Mill connects Agriculture, History and Art. It has been transformed from an obsolete mill & grain elevator into a heritage-tourism landmark with a museum and an art gallery. The farmers market brings agriculture back to the old mill in a lively way. It is a welcoming place for the community to gather, just llike mills of yore!

Besides fresh,locally grown produce, handmade crafts and live music, weekly guests will present educational topics related to farming, gardening, cooking or nature: from presentations on raising sheep or rabbits to growing herbs or saving raptors.Outdoorsy things that only a market with a meadow can do.

The Florence Mill Farmers Market starts the first Sunday in June and runs every Sunday through the end of September. The Market's sleep-in-Sunday hours are from 10am to 3pm. The Mill Museum and ArtLoft are open Wed-Saturday 1-5 PM Sundays from 10-3 PM.

Vendor tables and tents are both outside and inside, situated on a Fairbanks Scale that once weighed trucks loaded with grain. Visitors can tour Nebraska's only structure that bridges the historical eras of Pioneer Overland Trails and Teritorial settlement with hand-hewn 1846 timbers still part of its rustic construction.

The Florence Mill is located conveniently next to I-680, Exit 13 at 9102 North 30th Street in Omaha, Nebraska. Parking is free and within sight of the Mill.

Very nice market that is coming along very nicely. About a dozen vendors today (8/23/09) with a very nice selection. Also some crafts and pony rides for the kids.... [more]


I support the Florence Market because it is in the Florence area and there is nothing really out here and it promotes the history of the area that at time is most forgotten


I always enjoy visits to the Florence Mill and the festive atmosphere of the Farmers Market makes the trip even more worthwhile. I enjoy the variety of vendors at the market as well as being able to see the current exhibit at the Art Loft on the 2nd floor of the Mill.
