The Night Market, presented by Veridian Credit Union, has canceled its series of pop-up markets due to the current COVID-19 crisis. The evolving public health issue led organizers to err on the side of caution with the community’s health, safety, and well-being as top priority.
“The decision to cancel was difficult, but necessary for the safety of the community and the future success of the Night Market,” said Omaha Farmers Market’s Executive Director, Vic Gutman. “The Night Market is one of those events that brings energy and excitement to the heart of Midtown Crossing during spring, summer and fall months. We are going to miss seeing everyone out and about, but we are excited to come back with a bang in 2021.”
The 2020 Night Market would have originally taken place the last Friday of the month May through September from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. in Midtown Crossing at Turner Park. The core of the Night Market is its marketplace of more than 40 local vendors offering a wide selection of handmade and upcycled goods.
In an effort to support the local vendors in light of the cancellation, customers can follow the Omaha Farmers Market Facebook page and Instagram to see vendor spotlights that will include information on additional ways to purchase from vendors. A list of vendors will also be posted on omahafarmersmarket.org in the near future.
“We know this is a challenging and uncertain time for local businesses and for the entire community," said Vic Gutman. "The decision to cancel the Night Market was not taken lightly and we still want to support those vendors who were preparing to participate in this year’s event as best we can.”
