To Market, To Market

The Dane County Farmer’s Market is a one-of-a-kind experience. If you’re not within walking distance to the market, you begin by searching for a parking place. If you’re like my husband, parking ramps are not an option. Street parking is the only way to go. My husband and I may end up walking a mile, but the satisfaction he gets from finding that parking space is worth every extra step he makes me take.  

Once you arrive at the Capital Square where the Farmer’s Market takes place, the adventure begins. You need to bring a huge bag of patience and have enough grit to brave the crowds.  


There are so many choices and decisions to make.

The Dane County Farmer’s Market has it all – fun, food, friendly vendors, and lots and lots of people. It’s an adventure and a true slice of life!

(If only we didn’t have to walk all the way back to the car.)
