It is such a massive and awesome farmers market - If I lived there i would rarely shop in the grocery store. So many different vendors from plants to veggies to the cheesy hot bread!

A great time. Parking is terrible but very worth it. I love going to the farmers market. It is a beautiful walk around the court house with so many things to see. Definitely a great way to spend a few hours of your morning.

Madison's farmers' market has a wide variety of local food and local food products such as cheese, bakery, honey, maple syrup, jams and jellies. In addition to a wide variety of locally grown fruits and vegetables, you can get locally grown chicken, pork, beef, lamb and even local trout. It's in a beautiful locationaround the Capitol Square downtown so if... More

The Saturday-morning Madison Farmers' Markets are renowned for the variety and quality of food that is available. In addition to staples such as lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and green beans, you can find meat sticks, pastries, exotic vegetables, flowers, honey, and pickles. I especially like the large variety of peppers later in the season, as well as the many different kinds... More

Don't pre-judge the Madison/Dane County Farmer's Market based upon your visits to other farmer's markets. Trust me, this one is like no other in terms of size, variety of offerings, quality of offerings, accompanying enterainment and setting. When I take people to the market during a visit from out-of-town, they are ALWAYS amazed when they experience it. Highly recommended!!

Besides what is in season there also sell bakery, herbs, plants, cheeses and meats. I only go for what is in season, my fav meat place is D&G processing who have the... More

The Madison Farmer's Market is huge and you can find just about anything. Be sure to keep coolers in your car and carry canvas bags, or buy some there. I have been going to this for about the past 25 years and it just gets better with each year. There are parking garages not far from the capitol and so... More

The Farmers Market is very good. It is a true farmers market and has only food and plants, no trinkets. It is at the Sate Capital and if you like these markets it is worth a trip

This Farmer's Market is a full city block - so many different vendors. We bought jam, apple butter, beef jerky, cookies, beer stix, cherries, cheese curds, green beans, the list goes on. The vegetables looked so perfect they looked fake! I was with my 16 year old daughter and she loved it. And the Capitol Building was open (on a... More
