Old Market Passageway

An Artsy Alley with Nostaglic Plants, Brick, and Merch

The Old Market is Omaha’s most historic, most entertaining neighborhood. The cobblestone streets are home to a diverse mix of shopping, galleries, restaurants, taverns and people-watching.

Have your phone on the ready for photos of the Old Market Passageway. The one-time alley was developed about three decades ago into a series of shops and restaurants. You can find a mélange of interests – Mexican food and steak dinners, international clothing and curiosity items at stores. You can browse a litany of books, as well as check out an array of artwork. Most interior and exterior businesses have been a part of the Passageway for decades.
