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.
Saturday April 16, 2022 was the first April DCFM in 3 years! And it was a cold one, 20s to start, finishing in the 40s with a stiff breeze. I wore long underwear and had to put on my insulated bibs over top of everything to keep from freezing, but this is Wisconsin, so of course I saw a couple people wearing shorts!
We saw many familiar faces, including Pamela and Michael who were dressed appropriately. Thank you, Pamela and Michael!

How long have you been attending DCFM?
I saw ground cherries for the first time at farmers market. Michael thinks he saw cheese curds for the first time there, must have been a while ago.
Currently we are focusing on pork ribs but we have many favorites.

I always make different things but a current easy favorite is instant pot ground pork risotto.
