Madison farmer's market serving up more than good food

MADISON – You can find something good to eat or a unique gift every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday from 6 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Historic Farmers’ Market located at the Broadway Fountain in Madison, Indiana. Local farmers and artisans fill nearly 50 booths with everything from locally made aprons to zucchini breads.

“Come early and enjoy freshly made French toast, homemade breads, or biscuits and sausage gravy for breakfast,” said Dave Adams, market master.

Pie lovers can take their pick of homemade strawberry-rhubarb, peach, or apple pies. The warmth and goodness of grandmother’s recipes can also be found in treats such as homemade cinnamon rolls, chocolate chip cookies, poppy seed breads, pumpkin breads, and cupcakes. You can select from a variety of local honeys, home-grown produce, handmade soaps, and free-range chicken, duck, and peacock eggs.

From funky monkey hats to custom stepping stones and fresh cut flowers to stunning watercolors, you’ll readily find the perfect gift by perusing the booths of local yarn artisans, crafters, photographers, painters, and florists.

The Madison Farmers’ Market dates back to 1809 when the founder of Madison, Indiana sold 5,000 bricks that were made right along the Ohio River and can be seen in some of the 1700 brick homes in Madison.
