This Week ~ October 25
The Halloween Market is great way to celebrate the season’s final market. Enjoy complimentary hot cider, look for treats with the vendors, and enjoy the upbeat music of the Rodeo Bums, a country group with a rock n’ roll attitude.
It’s that comfort food time of year. The market has everything you need for soups, stews, chilies, casseroles, pies and those traditional tastes of home. Enhance the feeling of comfort with beautiful fall plants, flowers, pumpkins and gourds.

As the Monona Farmers’ Market wraps up an outstanding 12th season of great local food, entertainment and community connections, it’s time to give thanks. The success of the market results from the vision, creativity, and hard work of many. New market manager, Stacy Iruk, completed her first year at the helm with high praise. Behind the scenes, the volunteer steering committee tirelessly organizes, promotes and fund raises. The market couldn’t exist without the generous support of the sponsors, the ongoing commitment of the vendors and, of course, the patronage of the market shoppers – a heartfelt thanks to all.
