“Good place to visit in Madison”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

I come here every Saturday morning because there is the farmers market here. There are great cheese, plants, bread and salsa. If you come to Madison, you should plan to come here on Saturday. Great experience.

“Three things”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

There are three things you need to know about the Capitol Square.

1) The Madison farmer's market on Saturdays is amazing.
2) The Capitol building itself is free and open to the public.
3) There are several good restaurants and bars within the square and State Street is just right outside the square.

“Farmers Market”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

The largest farmers market I have ever been to and such a great deal. You can find anything here and in fact you can shop and find enough for a whole meal on the spot. Just pick a spot in the shade and sit down and eat what you purchased. A great market.

“Madison at its best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

The capital square is always worth a visit. I love to tour the inside of the capital building, which is every bit as beautiful as the one in our nation's capital. The grounds are beautiful any time, but especially fun during farmer's market on Saturday morning, the Art Fair on the Square and Taste of Madison. On a regular day, the grounds are great for people watching. You never know what you will see- cows on parade, acoustic singers, children's dance troupes, canoeists- you name it!
