  • 11 Favorite Women-owned Food Businesses in Madison, WI

    Feb 20 2018

    The number of women-owned food businesses in Madison, WI is inspiring–and growing! Over the years of running a food tour company in Madison, we have had the pleasure of working with many amazing partner businesses. I am particularly proud of the women-owned businesses that we (a woman-owned business) support and who support us in return. We work with a number of them, and though this list is not comprehensive, it provides a selection of the diversity of offerings that you will find in our city and on our tours. If you haven’t already, I hope you check them and other local women-owned businesses out!
