You Could Spend Hours At This Giant Outdoor Marketplace In Wisconsin

On Saturday mornings during the growing season, a huge crowd descends on the Wisconsin State Capitol. The Dane County Farmers Market is a marketplace and so much more – it’s a wonderland of fruits, vegetables, meats, and cheeses. It’s a place to discover new flavors that can be sampled on site, or brought home for a special Saturday night dinner. It’s not a place to rush (and truthfully, you couldn’t if you wanted to, especially when the crowd is at full strength.) Take your time to savor what’s growing at one of the best farmers markets in Wisconsin.

Get your market basket ready: here’s what’s waiting for you.
