What a fantastic experience! Fresh veggies of all types, fresh flowers, fresh cheese, fresh pastries and breads, just....fresh! Handmade pasta, meats straight from the farm----and this is just what's on the Capitol side. Across the street you'll find various handcrafted items. Enjoy if you don't mind crowds and avoid if you do---it's a swift-moving current of old, young, large, and small folks. Come early for the best selection, come later if you want a steal on what's still there.

I love this place. On our last trip, we went to the Farmer's Market on the Square, but whether there is something going on (Taste of Madison, Art Fair, Maxwell Street Days, Concerts on the Square) or there isn't, this is a beautiful place to just get out and walk.

If you're in the area of downtown Madison then this is a place you must swing by, hang out if you have the time, and do some people watching!

Nice place for a stroll with friends or family, with flowers all around! It's surrounded by some of the best restaurants in Madison. And the farmer's market on Saturdays is awesome! While there, add a visit to the Capitol.
