Do you know that Madison has the largest producer only farmers’ market in the country? That means you are directly supporting our farmers. But sometimes shopping at the market can be intimidating. Not sure what to get, how to use it or maybe even how to navigate the busy stands? Join us on Wednesdays through the summer for an insider’s look and learn how you can make the most of the Dane County Farmers’ Market and your visit. We’ll take you to meet 6-8 vendors, sample products such as cheese, honey and produce and learn how to use them in your meals! We’ll give you tips on making the most of our city’s amazing resource so that you become a market pro. AND you’ll get $5 to spend on that visit or your next! Make the most of the market while visiting or learn how to make the market part of your regular shopping routine.

This is a standing tour with all stops outside. The tastings are light, and meant to be an introduction to the market, not provide a meal. In addition to the market visit, there is an add-on option for a brief tour of our Capitol building and lunch from a food cart after the market tour.
