DeKALB – The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of DeKalb, 158 N. Fourth St., will hold its second Winter Farmers Market of the 2013- 2014 season from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 1. Admission is $1. 

“We have over 34 vendors. Many of the vendors are with the market for the first time,” organizer Dan Kenney said.

Local and regional vendors will offer such items as homemade jams, jellies and salsas; produce; baked goods; grass-fed, hormone-free beef; farm-fresh eggs; free-range chicken, pork, and sausage; locally-sourced cheese and honey; and more.

Montalbano Farms of Sandwich will also sign people up to receive fresh organic produce on a regular basis during the growing season.

In addition to the farmers, there will be a large variety of crafts and artwork. Jewelry, crocheted items, paintings, and homemade soap are only a few of the offerings available.

There will be live music and hot food all day.

“We are often complimented on the fun community atmosphere and what an enjoyable market it is,” Kenney said. “It is a great way to experience a warm and fun community event while also supporting local artists and growers. It is important to shop local. When you buy directly from a local farmer or artist, the money you spend multiplies throughout the community instead of leaving the county. It supports and helps build a strong local DeKalb County economy.”
