Dane County Farmer’s Market is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year!
The Dane County Farmer’s Market, (DCFM), is a big part of our life. And I realized, for many of our regular customers, it’s also a big part of their life.
Because just as regular vendors make a market, so do regular customers. It’s a community.
So we are going to celebrate this community with an ongoing series.
Barb makes nearly every market, usually with her daughter Caitlin. This dynamic duo shop and power walk the capitol square before the crowds arrive. Thank you, Barb and Caitlin!

How long have you been attending DCFM? About 30 years
DCFM memory: Going to the market with our young children who are now adults and getting pastries so they could share with the birds. Love the way more produce shows up as the season progresses.
Curiousfarmer Favorite: I remember meeting Matthew at one of the first Markets of the year – the weather wasn’t very nice, but CuriousFarmer was there and I had a conversation with him about natural bacon and he actually offered it! As we were chatting it turns out Matthew was a partner with Jordandal Farms, so it was really a nice way to start a relationship with a “new vendor”. I think his natural bacon is some of the best!
Go to meal: Hard to pick just one – really depends on the weather.
