Dane County Farmers’ Market
Saturday, April 15
The Dane County Farmers’ Market is back around the Capitol Square for the first outdoor market of the season. The nation’s largest producer-only farmers’ market is celebrating its 45th anniversary. A new logo and website will be unveiled at the first market. Organizers say the new website will help customers better connect with the hundreds of local farmers who vend at the market.
Easter brunch high tea
Sunday, April 16
The Green Owl hosts a vegan high tea — or brunch, if you prefer — to celebrate Easter. Truffles, scones with house-made jams, mini-quiches, baguettes with butter and radishes, curry un-chicken salad, deviled eggs and cucumber-herb cream cheese sandwiches are all on the menu — that’s right, it’s all vegan — and of course, your choice of tea. Reservations are encouraged; call 608-285-5290. At 1970 Atwood Ave., brunch ($15) starts at 10 am.
