It will additionally provide an opportunity for farmers, residents and visitors to the neighborhood to interact directly with each other give growers and producers of local agricultural commodities and other farm-related products direct marketing opportunities and enhance the quality of life in Elver Park by providing an activity that continues to foster community and social interaction.

Throughout the summer, the market will feature live music, science shows, nurse stations, health education stations, nutrition station, tractor/hay rides, boot camp, mounted patrol, Daylily Society of Madison, West Fest and much more!  The Madison Urban League will also be at the market to promote work-training opportunities.
