Haymarket Farmers’ Market begins May 6th

The Haymarket 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 Haymarket Farmers’ Market serves as one of Lincoln’s main social and culinary event. 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 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 business 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.



The Market is a growing entity that provides Lincoln with quality, uniqueness and service. We will be expanding the market again this year, staging vendors along Canopy Street, from P Street north to Q Street. The City of Lincoln’s Haymarket Farmer’s Market is open during 2017 every Saturday from 8:00am to 12:00pm, beginning May 6th and continuing through October 14th.

Returning market managers Linda Hubka, the Market’s Vendors Relations Manager and Jeff Cunningham, the Market’s Business Manager will be happy to provide any additional information needed. Feel free to contact Linda or Jeff at the Haymarket office, 435-7496.

It was smooth sailing for the cast of My Fair Lady Friday night at the Lincoln Community Playhouse as they followed the leads of Sam Ninegar (Professor Higgins) and Patty Kramer (Eliza Doolittle).
Kramer, a vocal performance major at UNL, graced the stage with poise, precision and prowess. Ninegar transformed nicely from his recent role as Cat in the Hat to an overbearing professor.
