Welcome to the 2019 Season
Counting Fingers & Toes
The rhythm of market season becomes so natural to us after awhile that it's easy to forget how long we've been at it. This Saturday we kickoff our 15th(!) season at the Westside Community Market, and we want to take a moment to say thank you to all who have got us this far. To all our wonderful shoppers, hosts, volunteers, tablers, musicians and to our stellar lineup of farmers & food artisans, thank you all so much for making us great! We're so lucky to have support on every level and we're excited to continue offering a weekly market experience we can all look forward to. There's an amazing lineup of vendors coming your way this season, with a broad selection of Wisconsin produce, plants, flowers, meats, cheeses, eggs, honey, maple syrup, fresh baked goods and so much more to enjoy each week. We'll be introducing you to some of our newest vendors in the coming weeks in the newsletter, but we hope you'll all welcome them to the market and try their great offerings. Again this season we'll be joined by the ever talented "Market Ramblers" with their array of danceable tunes and shakers for the kids to play along with! Our green-thumbed friends, the Master Gardeners will join us bi-monthly starting in May, so get your garden questions ready. For our littlest market goers, we're looking forward to the return of the Science is Fun crew, along with some of our favorite free kids event days like the ever classic Zucchini Car Races! This weekend, we'll be offeringfree face painting by our friend Claire Warhus of Snaggle Tooth Arts & Wayward Tattoos from 8am to 11am. So come along and join us this Saturday for good food, friendly faces and plenty of free parking! See you at market! Ben Zimmerman Market Manager
We're blushing over here! A huge thank you to everyone who voted for us in Madison Magazine's Best of Madison 2019. We won gold for Best Farmers' Market (other than Dane County Farmers' Market)!
