The South Madison Farmers' Market is located on the South side of Madison, Wisconsin and is one of the community's greatest assets. Fresh, organic produce, flower bouquets, meat, and baked goods are just a small taste of what you might find at the market. You will also find an accessible and enjoyable community gathering place where everyone is invited to come and stay awhile!

The diverse population of the South side of Madison means diversity in the products you will see and is sure to please everyone's culinary preferences. You will find many specialty products at the market that are not available at your local supermarket. We also give a fair market price for farm fresh produce so prices are also sure to please everyone.

The market provides consumers with information on organic produce and its benefits as well as the locally grown fresh produce. Monthly events planned around produce in season, such as strawberries, corn, and tomatoes provide the opportunity to sample farm fresh Wisconsin produce, enjoy local musicians, and visit with friends and neighbors. We are more focused on nutrition, community, diversity, and friendship more than anything else and we plan to keep it that way! The South Madison Farmers' Market will soon be starting its ninth season. The market runs from late April through late October and is open for business every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday.

Tuesdays and Sundays we are located at the Labor Temple Grounds on Park Street. On Tuesdays the market runs from 2 pm to 6 pm and on Sundays from 11 am to 3 pm. Wednesday's we are located at the United Church of Christ on Gilbert Road on Madison's West side from 3 to 7 pm. On Friday we are open from 2 pm to 6 pm, at the Villager Mall on Park Street. Both the Labor Temple and the Villager are easily accessible from the Beltline (Hwy 12/14) and there is ample free parking. On Monday, we have a new location at 2500 Rimrock Road and we are opened from 2-6 pm
