The farmers market at Splash Pad Park, across the street from the Grand Lake Theatre is a great market. We spent some time there during the summer when we visited and were looking for an apartment. A great farmers market within walking distance was near the top of our list of ideal features of a place to live. (This requirement was added to our list when we visited the Madison, Wisconsin, market at Monona Terrace last winter. That’s also a great market—except that a farmers market in Madison needs to be held inside during the winter.)
We expect to walk up Grand to the market pretty regularly on Saturday mornings. The market is open from 9 AM – 2 PM. The selection of food is very satisfying and the setting is very nice.
