MAD FOR MADISON

Hyperlocal food in a cool college town—what more could you want?
College-town charm. Local food. Cheese, sausage and beer. Wisconsin’s capital city has it all, which is why FOODWORKS loves this foodie town. Madison’s natural beauty shines especially in the spring and summer. Its surrounding hills and valleys provide a lush foundation for farmers who grow wonderful organic produce and make award-winning cheeses and meats featured on the menus of eateries around town, many of them FOODWORKS favorites.
You’ll meet these farmers at the Dane County Farmers’ Market, the nation’s largest producers-only market. Taking up the entire square around the capitol building, the market thrums as the heart of downtown Madison. From there, this walkable city and its unpretentious food scene is yours to discover. You’ll find food trucks and taquerias, craft distilleries and sustainable butcher shops, thoughtful tasting-menu restaurants run by established chefs such as Tory Miller and hipster up-and-comers serving casual fare with an edge. We’ve said it and we’ll say it again—FOODWORKS is mad for Madison.
