The farmer's market in Madison was so incredible! Lots of booths with really tasty foods, and many of vendors have free samples out which was nice. Definitely worth going to!

If you are in Madison for the weekend, you have to go to the Farmer's Market. On the square there are a ton of great vendors selling anything from squeeky cheese curds (they're actually squeeky!!) to seasonal vegetables and fruits to homemade Amish pies. There is something for everyone. Pricing is similar to any farmer's market: probably a little more... More

During my stay in Madison I made a few visits. It is well situated in the city square and easy to get too. The large market takes quite a time to walk around and see all the stalls. I cannot think of a better place to buy Maple syrup once you have had a taste.

We were there on a middle August Saturday which was perfect timing for many crops to be fresh for the market which is held in the street which circles the state capital. Many vendors selling cheese of course-this is Wisconsin. A lot of depth of vegetables, specialty foods, street buskers, entertainers, bakers and some politicians. Highly recommended as this is...

It was our first time to the market and the square was jam-packed with both vendors and shoppers. My wife loaded up on produce of all kinds at great prices. Lots of organic goods - kids were mostly kept in check with delicious baked goods and wind sprints on the Capitol grass.

I love this Farmer's Market. You can graze your way through the experience or just purchase yummy stuff to take home and cook/eat. You will find a huge line next on one corner for the cheesy hot bread. It's worth the experience. I wish there were more gluten free bakers, but we did find two options. Go early because by... More

I was looking forward to a dog from the food vendor - FIBS. That was def not a Vienna all-beef hot dog as stated - it was a water-logged pink hot dog. Too bad, they have great options but really need to deliver what they advertise on their food sign.

I see the phrase buy local often, but in Madison, Wisconson, they really mean it. Most folk really do look for locally grown food and as such this farmers market is one of the best in the country.

Each year, I happily travel 2 hours one way to visit the best Farmers market in the area. Plenty of great organic selections, nice variety of fruits, vegetables, plants, sweets, breads and cheese! If you hit the market at the right time, the Madison summer street festival will accompany this lovely market. More fabulous shopping on a Saturday afternoon. Get... More

This farmer's market is the best one I have ever been to and the largest producer's only market in the US. It is located by the capitol. My wife and I purchased blueberries, raspberries, cherries, tomatoes and jam. We never had such delicious fruit anywhere else. There are also excellent baked goods. I wish that I lived much nearer to... More
