:The Dane County Farmer's Market starts Saturday, April 15, 2023.

In an email and website post, the Dane County Farmer's Market announced:

The next two markets: 
Saturday, April 15th, Saturday on the Square, 6:15 am - 1:45 pm
Wednesday, April 19th, 200 Block of MLK Jr. Blvd, 8:30 am - 1:45 pm 

"We'll see you on the Square this Saturday!" the Farmer's Market email said.

"Thank you to everyone who came out to the last Late Winter Market!" the email says.

"We had a bunch of visitors and the offerings inside were looking pretty springy! And thanks again to all those who make our indoor season happen, we are so glad we can provide a year-round farmers' market to the community."

It continues: "This week's weather sure has us thinking it's outdoor market and patio season! But we have to remember that the weather hasn't quite been warm enough for long enough for too many spring veggies to show up on vendor tables, so we still have a few weeks until we're getting produce that was grown without any season extension help."

Even though it's a bit early, available items will be some vegetables grown in greenhouses.

The email says: "However, there will still be more available this Saturday than you might think! Keep your eyes out for greenhouse grown tomatoes and cucumbers plus hoop house grown greens and radishes. Did you know that microgreens are not just baby lettuce? They can really be any type of early plant. Some of the tastiest are sunflower microgreens and pea shoots!"

It adds: "Of course, the weather doesn't hamper the animals! You'll find chicken, duck and goose eggs as well as amazing cuts of beef, pork, lamb, goat and chicken. You'll also find your favorite flavor of super-fresh cheese curds or a flavorful aged cheddar. And so many flavorful mushrooms."

There will also be baked goods available, the email says.
