Madison welcomes new farmers market for the summer

By Maria Rakoczy

MADISON – Old Thyme Market is the newest farmers market in Madison. The market is making its home in downtown Madison every Friday afternoon throughout the summer.

Force behind the market, Alex Niblett, explained that it was her passion for both regenerative agriculture and local community that motivated her to start Old Thyme Market, “I want to start building relationships in the farming community while learning and supporting farmers at the same time. So many good things come from farmers markets. Farmers are making income, shoppers are getting connected with their food in an intimate way that doesn’t happen in any other setting, and the businesses in the area see an increase in revenue because of farmers markets.”

Niblett believes the market could benefit the downtown area.

“Downtown Madison is such a special area and the business owners there are very passionate about what they do and about the downtown area,” she said. “I’m very excited to bring Old Thyme Market to Downtown Madison, and I hope that people coming to downtown for the first time will not only visit the market but also walk Main Street and check out all the amazing shops and restaurants.”

Old Thyme Market includes farmers, craftsmen, artisans, and local businesses selling goods such as produce, local honey and preserves, pottery, and art. The markets also feature refreshments from Black Dog Grounds and Sounds, Suzy’s Pops, and Nanny’s Lemonade, and live music will be performed every week by local musicians.

The market takes place every Friday from 3pm-7pm now through September on Garner Street in downtown Madison.
