If you are in the Madison area on a Saturday, I would recommend the Dane County Farmer’s Market. There is a huge selection of local produce, meats and cheese. Don’t skip the spicy cheese bread and the pastries and cookies.

The market is unique as it requires the owners / growers to sell the produce so you can get a first hand experience while chatting with the farmers

This is by far the best Farmers Market. The whole square surrounding the Capitol has vendors selling their goods. Fresh vegetables, flowers, plants, baked goods, popcorn and many other items. A must see when in Madison. We will definitely be back!
