An update for our customers and friends

Please read the message to our community for a full update regarding our permit on the Capitol Square. Check out our FAQs if you have lingering questions regarding our market operations.

The Wisconsin Capitol Police has revoked our permit for the 2020 outdoor season. Still, the DCFM is open and continues to fulfill its core mission of connecting small Wisconsin farmers with patrons in the Greater-Madison area.

Please read below for details on how to purchase local and support our farmers!


How to purchase from our farmers

There are currently 3 primary ways you can purchase directly from our farmers at this time.

  1. Participate in our Wednesday Local Food Pick-ups! Pre-order and drive-thru for the safest and quickest market experience.
  2. Pre-order for or shop on site at our pilot Saturday Market at Willow Island! Patrons can pre-order and drive-thru during the designated drive-thru hours. Patrons can also pre-order their favorites, pick-up on foot during the walk-up market, and shop spontaneously for local produce and products from approximately 60 total farmers, bakers, and cheesemakers.
  3. Buy directly from our farmers via on-farm pick up, e-commerce, or home delivery! Peruse our How to Buy Directly from DCFM Farmers Google doc which is updated weekly and includes local meats, mushrooms, vegetables, farm fresh eggs, bakery items, and more.
