We love going to this farmers market, and travel an hour to get there on Saturday mornings. It's set around the State Capital with many different types of vendors. You can get fresh fruits and veggies, and so much more. My husband and daughter both LOVE the cheese bread!

Wow if you want to see Fresh this is the place to go, everything looked so nice and fresh and I was wishing I could cart a suitcase full of fruits and vegetables back home with me. There is a wide variety of all and the prices were right. I would highly recommend anyone going to Madison to check it... More

This is a great market. There was so much variety. Some things you cannot get at a grocery store. There were free samples too. We had to make 2 trips to the car. The only thing that I didn't find was a stand selling bison. I was specifically looking for it. I wish I lived near Madison. I would go... More

This is an amazing Saturday morning experience, but go early it gets very crowded as the morning wears on. Surrounding the state capitol building the market consists of a multitude of vendors selling fresh vegetables, fruit, cheese, honey, flowers, plants, meat, cheese, bread, pastries & more. Enjoy free samples as you meander. Bring your patience & a bag (or two)... More

What a great farmer's market! Every Saturday morning an incredible array of fruits, vegetables, meats, cheeses, flowers, pastries and advocacy organizations come together around the State Capitol building as thousands of visitors parade past (almost all going counter clockwise) sampling the tasty treats. The food is great but I also love the organizations that set up tables at the corners... More

They have everything you might want for a lovely meal from breads and vegetables to meats and poultry. Somehow, every time I make the drive from Milwaukee (and it is worth the drive), it is raining. Even then, it is fun and I wish it were closer.

The Madison Farmers market was a lot of fun. There was a great variety of vegetables, fruits and other edible items like honey and baked goods. Stella's spicy cheese bread was a hit with my husband and I. I went early at about 6:30 a.m. to avoid the crowds and then returned at about 11:00a.m. with my hubbie when things... More

I couldn't review other things from my recent trip to Madison, without including the Saturday morning farmers' market. Every Saturday morning in the summer, local farmers set up booths on the sidewalk surrounding the state capitol building. The wares range from homegrown tomatoes, to flowers, to seeds, to corn, to eggs, to meats of various types, and so on. These... More
