We were there on a Saturday and it was market day. Lovely stalls with breads, foods, jewellery, crafts etc. The square in front of the capitol is very impressive.

Beautiful area with so much to do! Kudos to Madison. Of course there are some homeless people but just get over it. I really enjoyed the view of the capital building and the lake!

The Capitol Square is a lovely scene, not only on Farmer’s Market Saturday’s, but many other times during the wonderful Wisconsin springs and summers. The Farmer’s Market has been voted the best in the country for reasons that become immediately obvious the first time one...More

Every Saturday during the spring/summer, hundreds of vendors set up booths for Farmer's market around the square. Bonus during May 7th- September 12, 2018 catch Bucky on Parade (life-sized Bucky Badger statues around the area as well). Great photo ops! Go Bucky!!

Lots of food, flowers and vegetables. Something for everyone. However, walk with the flow of pedestrian traffic. Everybody seems to walk in one direction. Trying the opposite way would be like a salmon swimming up stream.

GREAT place to visit. It’s a very easy and accessible area. It’s just disturbing to me the homeless that are everywhere. i know nothing of shelters in Madison but I think they may need more.

I will never get tired of the Madison Capital Square Farmers Market. The venue is perfect for this type of event. As you walk around you can get anything your heart desires.

Beautiful to see the Capital in Spring. Blooming trees, sidewalk cafes and friendly folks. Dogs walking with their humans is a nice site.

Given the amount of problems that have plagued Capitol Square over the last eight years, I would not exactly encourage it as a tourist attraction. Driving by it is nice. Slowly, try not to get too lost with the badly done traffic patterns, if you...More

I'm really not certain. I believe the Capitol has guided tours and is handicap accessible.
