The award-winning Dane County Farmers' Market has been a Madison tradition since 1972. With more than 270 members, including 18 new members for the 2018 season, the DCFM provides the best of each season's bounty.  As the nation's largest producer-only farmers' market, everything for sale at the Market has been grown, raised, and made by the member behind the stand. There is no resale permitted.

Cheers to an outdoor season filled with Wisconsin goodness!
