Dane County Farmer's Market open for the outdoor season

MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - The Dane County Farmer's Market opens up for the 2019 outdoor season on Saturday, April 13th starting at 6:15AM and closing at 1:45PM.

The Capitol Square in Downtown Madison will play host to ten new members this year. It now has approximately 270 members taking part.

You can enjoy fresh vegetables, fruit, herbs, cheese, meat, poultry, honey, maple syrup, nuts, jelly, eggs, candy, baked goods, plants, fresh flowers, and more.

A few UW-Madison Alumni in town for the weekend said the farmers market was not the only perk while they visited.

Peggy Ludlow and her friend Julia Mercer said they are both former band members and wanted to see UW-Madison Band Director Mike Leckrone conduct his last Varsity Band Spring concert, while also getting to enjoy some cheesy bread from the market.

"Julia and I are both band alumni and are here in town for the concert and had to come to the farmers market. It was the first weekend, and we are excited it happened to line up,” Ludlow said.

The Wednesday Market opens on Wednesday, April 17 from 8:30 am to 1:45 pm. It's located on the 200 block of MLK, Jr. Blvd. between the Capitol and the Monona Terrace.

The DCFM outdoor markets are open every Saturday and every Wednesday from April 13 through November 16 no matter the weather.
