Do you know that Madison is home to the largest producer only farmers’ market in the country and a cutting edge farm-to-table restaurant scene? When you shop at the Dane County Farmers' Market you are directly supporting our farmers--and many Madison area chefs and restaurant do that every day!

On this tour not only will you learn how to navigate the busy stands at the Wednesday Dane County Farmers' Market, but you will also get to sample food from three downtown restaurants that consistently and directly support our farmers' market. Join us on Wednesdays through the summer for an insider's look and taste of the market.  You'll visit 6-8 vendors, sample products such as cheese, honey and produce and learn how to use them in your meals! After that we'll enjoy tastings at Morris Ramen, Graze and Ian's Pizza, all area restaurants that consistently support our local producers. We may even see the chefs at market! We’ll give you a vendor map and tips on making the most of our city’s amazing resource so that you become a market pro. And you’ll get a tote bag and $5 to spend on that visit or your next (including the Saturday market)! 

Highlights: Meet the producers and enjoy samples at the market! Three tastings at local restaurants (enough for lunch). Tote bag, recipes and $5 gift certificate included to spend at any Dane Co. Farmers’ Market.
