Above average early season farm market. Lots of choice (pricey though). Not a real good place with small kids though-very crowded and not stroller friendly.

More than just cheese(but lots of that too). The wide selection of produce and food venders will wow you. The location right in front of the Capitol Building bustles with activity. You will have to walk a ways because parking nearby is scarce.

A great way to support your local area farmers and get some good stuff too. There are many venders that have a lot of produce grown locally. This time of year is great to find plants and flowers as well.

The Madison Farmer's Market is not to be missed if you are in Madison on any weekend from April to early November. The farmers start setting up very early, so by 6:00 a.m. they're ready for shoppers. And arriving early has many benefits! Better parking, smaller crowds, and the pick of the amazing produce, meats, cheeses, plants, and bakery items.... More

Went with the family for the day. Had a great time. Ate tons of food. Don't miss the cheese bread! Picked up a loaf that was still warm. Yum!

We are self-employed and travel for business frequently and have the leisure of traveling where we chose so we chose Madison upon recommendation of the Farmer's Market- it did not disappoint. We wish that we had thought to bring a cooler to transport all of our produce and other foods back home (5-hour drive). It's best to get there early-... More

After eating breakfast downtown we were told that the farmers market was open so we walked to the capital bldg. It is the best of the best of products by local farmers and other local entrepreneurs. Whether you are looking for honey, syrup, spices, meat sticks, spicy cheesy bread, a huge assortment of bake with goods from several local bakeries,... More

This farmers market is the best farmers market you will ever attend. To the selections of flowers, fruit, veggies, cheeses, baked goods, and the location is right around the beautiful Capital building! The prices are not bad at all. Very good when compared to the grocery store, especially considering the quality. I've been going to this farmers market since college,... More

For years we have taken advantage of what the Madison Farmer's Market has to offer. It is held on Saturdays (I don't know the hours or dates off the top of my head.). We live outside Milwaukee and we usually make the annual trek to Madison. We spend the night, have a nice meal out and enjoy the market on... More
