Anybody been to the Madison Wisconsin farmers Market lately? I know it is pretty extensive-any not to miss vendors?
To me, there are 3 musts:
1) Asian vegetables from the Hmong farmers because you don't find that in IL markets.
2) Foraged goods. Dane County has slightly different rules than, say Green City, and they produce a market that is not the same week to week. These rules produce the occasional person selling foraged goods including nuts (butter, hickory, black walnut); mushrooms, and other stuff.
3) Cheese, obviously! It's a bit easier to find some of the great cheeses these days from Wisconsin at places like Pastoral and Marion St. Cheese, but there's others that are still not widely distributed or even sold outside the market.
