Farmers’ Market Report #1, Recording By: Heather Dominick and Andre Darlington

First Day Success!
With nearing record crowds and beautiful skies, the first day back on the Square was a success! Enjoy the tastes, SOUNDS and views of last Saturday.

Our winter Taste of the Market Breakfast Coordinator, Heather Dominick, and her recording partner, Andre Darlington, have teamed up to give us an insider’s scoop. Lend an ear to market day. LISTEN TO REPORT #1

Join us Saturdays from 6am to 2pm at the Capitol Square and Wednesdays from 8:30am to 2pm at the 200 block of Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd. You’ll be sure to find the best offerings of the season from all over the state. Have questions? Need more information on what’s available? Stop by our market information booth at the top of State Street or give us a call (608) 455-1999.

EBT services are also available at the information booth.

DCFM T-Shirts and Tote Bags!

You’ve asked and we’ve delivered. Dane County Farmers’ Market t-shirts and tote bags are finally here. We’ve teamed up with UW-Madison students from the School of Business working on an entrepreneurial management project. They designed the shirts and totes and will help manage sales. You know you want one! You can buy them online by clicking the link below or visit us at our market information booth on Wednesdays.


Recorded: Reducing Kitchen Waste through Creative Cooking 

Join DCFM intern, Sarah Clifford, for conversation around the minimization of food waste. If you missed her demonstration at our market, you can still watch it here. Learn more about how much money we end up throwing away in the form of kitchen waste and how we can greatly reduce this number through traditional cooking. Learn cooking tips on how to utilize the unknown and largely uncoveted parts of ingredients and be resource in the kitchen.

Recipe Cards!
New this year, the DCFM is offering free recipe cards at each market. A variety of seasonal ingredients from the market are featured along with helpful cooking tips and buying guides on the back of each card.

This winter’s series of recipes range from simple dishes with few ingredients, creative ideas for those with limited kitchens, to more involved recipes for canning, soups, and tarts. Recipe cards are available at the information booth next to the EBT/SNAP station. Keep checking because we issue new ones often.

Forgot to stop by and pick up your DCFM recipe cards? All recipes are now available on our website!
