Readers’ Choice 2010 Best Wine Shop

While Dan Matuszek traveled the country working for E & J Gallo, he was contemplating the wine business he wanted to create at home in Omaha. “I started thinking about it 15 years ago,” Matuszek says. “I never found the format that I wanted, so I came up with my own.” Matuszek opened Brix in Village Pointe in January, and it’s been worth the wait.

Readers’ Choice 2010 Best Music Store

Homer’s is an Omaha music institution.

Readers’ Choice 2010 Best Famers Market

Helped at least partly by the growing popularity of the local food movement, the Omaha Farmers Market has grown from having about 20 vendors and a few hundred visitors in 1994 to more than 110 vendors and about 8,000 visitors on an average weekend last summer. Vic Gutman has been through it all, founding the Omaha Farmers Market in 1994 after nearly 30 years of not having a farmers market downtown. This year, it...
