A good variety of vendors in a spectacular setting. It gets crowded as the morning wears on, but that may be good if you enjoy people watching. My wife and I got there about 7 AM, and the vendors were ready to go....and probably had been for some time. One helpful tip - bring cash. We only found a couple... More

We visited the Market on a Wednesday. It wasn't very large but I was told the Saturday market was much bigger. We bought some great fresh produce and a few delicious sweets. There was a parking garage only one block away which was very convenient. I can't wait to go back on a Saturday and see just how big it... More

Always fun and one place has the most amazing ginger molasses cookies! Love all the taste testing which invariably leads to unplanned purchases. The fried cheese is another favorite. We do wonder why there seems to be so many of the exact same vegetable stands? You can find some neat fresh cut flower arrangements also. Go early as the crowd... More

If you are new to the Farmer's Market you should know that it gets extremely busy. Don't expect to make a full loop of the entire Capital circle in less than an hour. The quality of the vendors is excellent, and I love that I can get a great breakfast pastry and pick up fresh vegetables for dinner. A bit... More

I love farmer's markets and this one was great-too bad I don't live in Madison....first could there be a more perfect setting around the beautiful capitol building?!!! Produce, honey, cheese and baked goods were all beautiful and tasty!! Worth a trip just to look....but I am sure you will find something to buy. We enjoyed a cheesy empanada as we... More

With it being the largest in the nation for farm fresh items of all kinds, how can it not be spectacular. I've taken friends from out of State and they were very impressed. working downtown, I also enjoy the smaller market on Wednesdays. A fun way to meet the producers and buy some quality products.

There's a huge farmers market all around the Capitol building in downtown Madison on Saturday mornings. Fruits, vegetables, cheese (love those cheese curds!), jewelry, etc.

Going down to the Farmer's Market early on Saturday morning is always something to look forward to. Crowds get dense quickly so I like to be there no later than 7 a.m. Hey, I'm a morning person so it works for me. Selection of fresh food, cheese, honey, maple syrup, meat is just amazing and delicious. Did I forget about... More

Attending the farmer's market most any Saturday for fresh veggies or bakery item is simply an enjoyable experience. The prices are very competitive but you also have a choice of selecting organic or non-organic veggies. Many fresh flowers some cut and some in pots also will add that freshness of summer to most any room or home. Walking down main... More

We get our flowers here every year - you might pay slightly more, but feel good about supporting the small businesses! There are also great bread & veggie selections. Our favorites are the Amish Pies and the Maple Sugar Candy! If you go at lunch time, check out FIB's Food Cart. They do awesome Chicago Style Beef Sandwiches! I've been... More
