Outtakes from Madison’s Farmers’ Market

Madison, WI – One of the things I missed most about Madison while in Philly was the extraordinary farmers’ market held each Saturday during the summer on the Capitol Square. It’s the largest producer-only farmers’ market in America. Sure, Philly had the Italian Market, Reading Terminal Market and a glut of small neighborhood farmers’ markets run mostly by the Amish. But Madison’s Saturday Farmers’ Market is truly a community affair, drawing hundreds, if not thousands, to downtown to buy smoked meats, cheeses, baked goods, produce, syrups, tree nuts and flowers. Many come to advocate various causes or play music. Whatever the reason, a good time is usually had by all. A must do for anyone visiting Wisconsin’s capitol city.
