Saturday on the Square

Our Dane County Farmers’ Market is the largest producer-only farmers' market in the country. What's that mean? The 275 vendors who line the Capitol Square each Saturday grow or make their own goods. Pretty cool, huh?

Madisonians flock to the outdoor market April through November for in-season produce, baked goods, sauces and specialty products. Looking for more than food? Street musicians, magicians, artists and food carts add to the festival-like atmosphere. 

You've heard that the early bird gets the worm. Well, at the market it's local chefs who get their pick of produce and specialty items as they are often the first to show at 6:15 a.m. Don't worry, there is plenty left for the rest of us. From fresh-cut flowers to vegetables, and hot loaves of Stella's Bakery spicy cheese bread (a must!) to local honey, you'll check off your list and discover hidden gems.

So BYO bag – that's right, we're sustainable – and get ready for some fresh-veggie fun.
