DeKALB – On Saturday, March 22, the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of DeKalb will welcome spring by holding its final winter farmer’s market of the season, from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. at the church, 158 N. Fourth St. in DeKalb.
The market includes a variety of vendors selling locally-produced meat, eggs, cheese, and produce; organic local honey; baked goods; crafts; locally-made soaps, fibers and bath items; and art work.
“It is always a festive event, and great fun,” said Dan Kenney, one of the event’s organizers.
There will be a variety of live music throughout the day, and hot food and beverages for sale.
“We have all the farmers and artists we can fit into one building, and we have a waiting list. The response has been great,” Kenney said.
The church also offers a large used book sale in the church library.
Every dollar spent to support a local farmer or artist multiplies in the community. Of every dollar spent at a local market with local farmers and artsts, 60 cents stays in the community; when the same dollar is spent at a chain store, only 40 percent stays in the community.
The March market also offers a plant and seed exchange, offered by DeKalb County Community Gardens. Bring some of your heirloom seeds and exchange them for other seeds or plants, or just visit the DCCG table for your spring planting needs.
Admission is $1. For more information, call 815-793-0950 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
