My first weekend away from the farmers' market.

As I have already mentioned, the Dane County Farmers' Market has become one of my favorite places. I have spent the past two Saturdays having a blast exploring the products offered from a variety of local vendors.

This weekend, I'm going to Columbus, Ohio for my friend's wedding, so I'll be MIA at the market. I figured this would be a good opportunity to showcase some interesting market-related photos that I have taken thus far.

One of the many cheese smorgasbords available at the market.
One of the most fascinating and moo-worthy people that I have met in Wisconsin is Larry the Gourd Guy. The name pretty much says it all. The man loves his gourds, and he's a really nice guy.

Larry was very happy to show off his many gourds!
I find it quite fun to come home from the market with great loot from local vendors.

Sugar-free apple butter, raspberry jalapeno pepper jelly, bread n' butter pickles, & pumpkin tortelloni
I have been hoping to score some homespun yarn at the market, which I haven't found yet but I did find some at Anthology on State Street.

I expect to have some major catching-up to do at the market when I'm back next weekend!


  1. Oh wow... the innuendoes I could make about the gourds... but I am assuming you will have to see this guy on a regular basis.. so I will refrain. YAY FOR GOURDS! #1 YOU GUYS! GOURDS!

  2. Raspberry jalapeno pepper jelly??!?!?!? AMAZING.

  3. Did you ride your bike to the market ?

  4. I live downtown and I'm a 3 minute walk from the market, though many people bike there instead. I just love all the goodies!

  5. I'm with Natalie.. that jelly sounds delicious!

  6. The jelly of course reminded me of Myra's Dionysus in Cincinnati :)
