Beautiful capitol, well-maintained grounds, and surrounded with a great and inviting array of restaurants and food carts, shops, a couple of museums and other interesting architecture, something, really, for everyone and every taste.

What a great event with a large variety of vendors offering a wide variety of food! Offered a large varitety of drinks as well. Music consisted of different genres. Something for everyone and kid-friendly!

The square is the place to be during the warmer months. The farmer's market is the best that I've ever been to, with a great variety of grocery and craft items. It is also home to Art on the Square in August, and Taste of Madison in September. And it's close to many shops, restaurants, and museums.

The Capitol Building in Madison is a wonderful place to visit. I remember as a kid going to the square to see the Capitol and to shop. I'm still fascinated when we go there - I don't think the shopping is as good as it was then but there are still some good places to go.

Every Saturday from April - Oct. there is a farmers market that surrounds the square. All vendors are required to be local and offer fresh cheese, vegies, meat and plants. The vendors are very willing to talk about how/what/where they grow their products. A definite must see if you are in town.
