Spring in Madison



Spring is in the air in Madison. As of last week, the lakes are fully thawed, the Library mall fountain is spouting, the terrace tables and chairs are in place, and most excitingly, the Dane County Farmers' Market on the Square opens this Saturday, April 19! Although I won't be in town to enjoy the first, at least I know that I have many, many Saturdays of farmers' markets ahead. There's no better way to start the weekend than with a small coffee, a fresh pastry, a lovely stroll around the Capitol square, live music, local farmers, and incredible local produce. I love Madison. I love the farmers' market! Here are the details:

This is wonderful! My mom and I have been up there a few times, and I have been wondering when the first one is. I love taking the kids up there to walk around. Who knows, maybe we'll run into you some Saturday :)
