Be a Winter Warrior

Wisconsin winters can be rough. But Saturday mornings can be a welcome respite.

In the chilly doldrums of our Wisconsin winters, we envision Saturday mornings being a welcome respite. Bundle up, grab your family and friends and be a Winter Warrior! The Dane County Farmers' Market Late Winter Market is a hubbub of activity where Wisconsin producers and eaters can interact directly, but we are also so lucky to be surrounded by other stellar businesses and organizations that help make winter a time of community and joy.

Visit the DCFM's Late Winter Market and stock up on local ingredients perfect for cozy cooking like sweet and crunchy carrots and buttery potatoes. Treat yourself to a cinnamon roll handcrafted by one of the market bakers. Refuel with a bubbling hot slice of breakfast pizza from Ian's Pizza. Rejuvenate with a massage or facial at KOSA Wellness Spa & Retreat. Don't forget your growler so you can fill it up with handcrafted seasonal kombucha from NessAlla Kombucha! Expand your support of sustainable food systems by checking out information at Sitka Salmon Shares on their Community Supported Fishery. And before you venture home, warm up in the tropical Bolz Conservatory at Olbrich Botanical Gardens that is full of free-flying birds, bright flowers, and fragrant trees.


Document your wintertime adventures at market, at our Garver Feed Mill neighbors, and at Olbrich Botanical Gardens with #MadisonWinterWarrior and you’ll be eligible to win prizes, like a 1/2 day retreat at KOSA Spa and a $75 gift card to Ian's Pizza! Follow along on Instagram and Facebook all season long as we showcase your adventures, highlight winter activity ideas, and announce prizes.

Bundle up, grab your family and friends, and join our community this winter!

Late Winter Market at Garver Feed Mill, Saturdays, January 4 - April 4, 2020 from 8 am - noon
