Find local foods—even in the aisles of Madison's biggest grocery stores

Jul 19, 2010

Madison loves to eat local. And sure, it’s easy to find veggies, honey, cheese and other locally produced delicacies during the summer months, when area farmers' markets are in full swing. But area supermarkets and grocery stores are loaded with local items, both seasonally and year-round. So we asked Madison-areas grocers to list the local products they sell.
