Enjoy the Abundance at Every Meal & Occasion

The primary producers and growers who surround our Square each Saturday are delivering an array of amazing products for all of their favorite customers (you!). Take advantage of the most fruitful time of year with local produce for every meal.

There are plenty of delicious, summer recipes to spice up your market finds (see recipe below), but we always recommend enjoying most of your produce raw. Nothing beats the crunch of a fresh carrot or juiciness of a plump Door County cherry. Stock up this Saturday and next Wednesday with the tastiest selection in Madison.

EBT Double Dollars

The Dane County Farmers’ Market is excited to partner with Community Action Coalition to bring EBT Double Dollars to the DCFM each week going forward. This program provides people who receive SNAP benefits, with a $25 match incentive when they use their EBT card to shop at the market.  The program will continue into December or until the funding runs out. Whichever comes first!

Take The Bus

Why hassle with the car to get to the DCFM. Madison Metro offers quick, inexpensive transport to the market. Hop on a bus. If you’re on or near the isthmus many times you can be at the market in 5 or 10 minutes. Avoid the cost and inconvenience of parking when you take the bus. For more information get on Metro’s tweet feed or check out their web page, dedicated to transit to the DCFM. Thanks, Metro!


Street parking is available near the Square along with many municipal parking ramps.
