Remind me next year to not bother going to the market on the last weekend in April.  It is ALWAYS miserable and dreary, while the weekend before has always been a glorious welcome into Spring. Interesting how predictable these weather patterns can be.

Dane County Farmers' Market 2012!

The Dane County Farmers' Market around the Capitol Square in Madison, Wisconsin is the largest producer-only farmers’ market in the country. All items are produced locally by the vendor behind the table. 

At the top of State Street you will find the artist section of the market, with about 30 of us handmade artist selling our wares.  You'll find me there most Saturdays this summer, one of my favorite places to be!  Come say Hi!

abundant thyme

It is the first week of April and in Wisconsin we would normally just be getting started digging in the soil, but this year has been so warm, we are already harvesting some overwintered crops that are as lush as if it is the middle of summer.  So far we have collard greens, leeks, lovage, tarragon, anise hyssop and thyme ... lots and lots of thyme.  What are you harvesting from your garden?
