South Madison Farmers' Market has new Sunday hours at the Labor Temple
I had my last watermelon of the summer yesterday at the South Madison Farmers' Market.
They decided to no longer go head-to-head with what they call the "Wal-Mart" of markets on the Square Saturday -- the Dane County Farmers' Market -- and have moved their weekend market to Sunday at the Labor Temple grounds at Park Street and Wingra Drive. They've also expanded to three markets a week -- at the Labor Temple Tuesday and Sunday and the Villager mall on Thursdays.
They're located right along the Wingra Creek Bike Path, so take a back pack next time you ride the path. You can also get your bike checked out by volunteers from the FreeWheel Bicycle Collective, located at the Villager mall on Park Street. They hold an “Open Shop” on Thursday nights and Saturday afternoons. During these times, anyone in the community can use the shop to maintain bicycles in a facility staffed by helpful volunteers.
