4 A CAPITOL MARKET Monday through Friday, the grounds of the Wisconsin State Capitol in Madison look like most government locations, buzzing with politicians and policymakers. But on Saturday mornings, politics fall by the wayside as the Capitol grounds, also known as the Square, welcome the largest producers-only farmers market in the country. The Dane County Farmers' Market began in 1972, and Saturday on the Square is its signature event. The market starts in April and continues through early November. Visitors can shop and taste the goods of hundreds of farmers and other producers who sell items as varied as duck eggs, sheep-milk cheese, bok choy and wheatgrass. Since Saturday on the Square runs through early November, groups that visit Madison in the fall can look forward to finding some signature autumn harvest produce for sale. In the last half of November, a special market inside the city's convention center features more than 50 vendors offering holiday-themed goods. W W W.D C F M.O RG
