Outdoor farmers’ markets’ return signals arrival of spring

Two Madison farmers’ markets moved outdoors for the season for the first time on Saturday, a sure sign that spring is approaching.

The Dane County Farmer’s Market, which bills itself as the largest producer-only farmer’s market in the country, began its 2017 season around the Capitol Square Saturday morning.

The market runs Saturdays from 6:15 a.m. to 1:45 p.m. until Nov. 11 and Wednesdays on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard from 8:30 a.m. to 1:45 p.m.

The Westside Community Market kicked off Saturday at its new home at the UW Health Digestive Health Center for the 2017 season. The market, which had been located a half-mile away in the parking lot of the Wisconsin Department of Transportation building on Sheboygan Avenue, made the move this season due to the construction of a new state office building at the previous site.

The west side market runs on Saturdays through Nov. 4.
