Great area
Oct 2021
We came on a Saturday during the Farmers' Market. The area was bustling with activities. We visited the Veteran Museum and the Historical Museum. We enjoyed the Farmers' Market and there are plenty of retail stores and restaurants around the square.

Beautiful stately building with lots of activity and centrally located
Jul 2021
Captivating views of the building from many side streets. Lively farmers market on Saturdays around the square. Numerous restaurants, coffee shops, convenience stores, hotels, and more within 1/4 m from capitol.

Saturday Farmer's Market
Aug 2019
This has one of the best farmer's markets that I have ever seen. It circles the entire mall. The mall itself is very peaceful and quiet except on Saturday mornings. I only wish that there was more seating to enjoy the park

Beautiful Capitol Square!
Sep 2019
It is always exciting to tour the Capitol Square and surrounding shops, particularly durring Farmers Market season. There are thousands of great things to explore and learn. Fun food samples at the Farmer's Market. There are even posters at the Market and one can get acquainted with the cows and goats supplying milks made into the Artisanal cheeses at the market. Exciting bookshops near the Capitol too.

Very well utilized
Nov 2019
Each time I am in Madison there is also something going on at the Capital Square. On Saturdays (not in the winter) there is the Farmer's Market that had and endless number of vendors. There are often bands or performers depending on the time of year. The Capitol building itself is just beautiful, not something you see often.

Whenever we go to a badger game, we arrive earlier and go around the square for the Saturday farmers market.

Farmers Market on Saturday Mornings
Aug 2019
Once a year we make a visit to Capital Square on a Saturday morning to browse and shop. Super crowded so make up your mind ahead of time to practice patience! If you get a chance stop by the Old Fashioned for an Old Fashioned! And don't forget Fromagination for some cheese!

Saturday market
Oct 2019
Attended the large farmers market on saturday which occurs for most of the year and which fills all sides of the square together with some great stores, very good variety of produce, friendly stallholders, lots of samples, its position at the top of the isthmus between the lakes gives the square a grandeur. Easy parking nearby as its weekend, visited the Capitol building after to complete the experience.
