Dane County Farmers' Market (Madison, WI)
Sprawling beneath the steps of Wisconsin's impressive capital building, the Dane County Farmers' Market is the largest producer-only market in the country! Drawing on the greatness of America's Dairyland, with more than 250 members and an average of 150 stands per week, this market is a mecca for produce loving locals. It's also a testament to the agricultural power of America's heartland. Prepare yourself to be overwhelmed by the array of world-class cheese!

A mainstay at almost any gathering in Wisconsin, the classic Cheese Ball is a humble meld of cream cheese with just about any other semi-hard cheese you have on hand. With so many varieties of cheese on offer from Wisconsin's legendary dairy farms, the Cheese Ball's omnipresence in the state comes as no surprise!
