Huge farmers market! Jun 09, 2014
This is an incredible farmers market and it is quite large. They have bakeries, florists, and every kind of vegetable in season here. You can sample pretty much any kind of cheese they sell here. One of the things that I love the city of Madison the most is that it is very diverse. Everyone, doesn't matter who you are or what you are about, in completely accepted. This is a must do if you come to Madison!!!! Also, wander up and down State Street while you are wandering the farmers market. There are a lot of quirky, eclectic shops up and down that strip. The Soap Opera is one of my favorites.

The Dane County Farmers market occurs each Saturday morning around the state capitol building. It runs from spring through autumn. The streets that circle the capitol are shut down and countless tents go up for farmers selling their products.

It's a great place to go for people watching, walking with your family, and especially for shopping for high-quality fresh food. Adding to the ambience are musicians who play along the square, and the politically minded groups and individuals who take residence at the corners of the square, especially in an election year.

Meet the farmers who grow the fresh fruits and vegetables, flowers, and plants. Indulge in a freshly baked croissant, mini-bread, or grab a package of cheese curds. The curds are fresh if they squeak while you chew them. Fresh, farm-raised meats and eggs are also available.

It is a great experience, especially on a beautiful morning. This is a great way to start a day, especially in autumn during football season. A trip to the market for breakfast, or shopping, followed by a stop off at one of the countless tailgate parties in anticipation of a Wisconsin Badgers football game is one of Madison’s simple, and greatest pleasures.

I go at least 2 times a month and absolutely love this farmers market. One major bonus is that Dane County is trying to get lower income families to participate in supporting local farmers and they even take the food card here! State street is an adjacent street and that is a must too. Eclectic and quirky shops. Must have some cheese stuffed bread when you come here. If you decide to, I'll show you around!
