  • It gets super packed so be prepared to slowly shuffle through the crowd. It's totally worth it for the cheese bread and all the fresh food, though! There were some stands just off the square selling things like t-shirts and local art too. While you're there, it's totally worth going in the capitol building if you've never seen it before.
  • The Madison farmers market is one of the best! The variety of vendors as well as craft vendors on state Street give you everything you need, as a local or as a tourist. The prices are very reasonable and the produce is amazing. Flowers, jams, jellies, honey, maple syrup, cheese, and so much more! If you go, you must stop for a hot and spicy cheese bread at Stella's. I'd also recommend Brunkow's baked jalapeno cheese.
  • Enjoy all kinds of fresh farmers' produce and more. It's a fun thing even if you just browse around in the Saturday morning.
  • Nothing like getting your garden fresh vegetables and fruits straight from the farmers. Don't forget your cheese curds, warm bread, golden honeys, smoked fish, spicy jerky or flowers!
  • Incredible selection of local food and produce. Lots of classics, like Stella's spicy cheese bread and the fried cheese samples.often really crowded, so best to come early.
