Madison Farmers Market Event

DSC_8397
The Farmers Market at the Capitol in Madison Wisconsin, also known as Dane County Farmers Market, is located around the Capitol Square. From 6 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Saturdays starting from late Spring until early Fall, you will find an fantastic variety of brilliant flowers, organic vegetables, bee-keepers honey and a bounty of handmade local products with flair! Full sidewalks with families are exploring these vendor creations, sampling the local goods and often waiting in line to purchase these natural delights. If you can’t cruise the sunny wide sidewalks at the Capitol, surf the Dane County Farmers Market Directory here for local sources. As you explore at the goods on the square, it is a pleasure to take a break on a hot sunny summer day and walk inside the cool and truly impressive Madison Capitol building. The Capitol reflects stately architecture with history and where both chambers of the Wisconsin legislature  reside along with the Wisconsin Supreme Court and the Office of the Governor.
