The Dane County Farmers' Market is America's largest producers-only farmers' market and is held on Saturday mornings in Madison, Wisconsin. [1] From April to November, it is held from 6 am to 2 pm on the Capitol Square, as well as on Wednesday mornings from 8:30 am to 2 pm on Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. From November to December, it is held indoors at the Monona Terrace, and from January to April, it is held at the Madison Senior Center. During the summer months, the market consists of approximately 300 vendors and completely encircles the Capitol Building.[2]

The farmers' market was founded in 1972 by Madison Mayor Bill Dyke, who sought to unite Dane County's urban and rural cultures. It is currently managed by the Dane County Farmers' Market co-op.[3]
