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

I was pleasantly surprised at the selection available even in winter. We came for Hook's Cheese, but also took some smoked trout home. There were quite a few root vegetables, and different varieties of green available, apples and cider, plus some crafts, canned goods, and honey, indoors at the Senior Center, all on one of the coldest days of the...

The market is every Saturday Morning from April thru mid-November until 1 pm in the afternoon. You name it, you can get it here. Farm/grass fed beef, fresh veggies, honey, gluten free bakery products, flowers, and... More

Top notch market is held outside during mid-April thru mid-November, covers all 4 sides of Capital Square, then moves inside to Monona Center mid-Nov to Christmas. Then one of the best-kept secrets is when the market moves to Senior Center in January, it features fabulous breakfasts cooked by rotating master chefs. I love the winter breakfasts - especially when L'etoile... More

I have never been to the market this late in the season, it was outstanding! There was so much more available in fresh produce than I expected. I picked up a full stalk of brussel spouts for $3, bag of broccoli $1, medium cauliflower head $1.50, bag of spinach $1, squash $2! I also got a variety pack of shittake... More

Really, this is the best Farmers Market anywhere! It took us approx 2 hours to go through. The market is on the square surrounding the absolutely beautiful Wisconsin Capital building. There are flowers, vegetables, wines, breads (freshly baked), olive oils, nuts (try the Hickory Nuts - a little expensive, but went great with the roasted brussel sprouts we made), cheese,... More

I visited Madison for a fall weekend and enjoyed several strolls around the farmers' market on a Saturday morning. The market extends for about four blocks and was packed with farmers, local producers, and vendors serving ready-to-eat food and drink. The food trucks offer something to please every palate and at affordable prices. The quality and variety of offerings is... More
