DeKALB – The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of DeKalb, 158 N. Fourth St., will host a Winter Farmers’ Market with local artisans and book sale Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Admission is $1.

“This market has become an annual DeKalb tradition, and we’re really looking forward to the warm and festive atmosphere,” market coordinator Dan Kenney said in a news release. “This year, in response to requests from vendors and shoppers, we’re adding a November market, in addition to our usual holiday market, which will be coming up on the second weekend in December.”

Many of the local farmers and artisans are returning this year. Hasselmann Family Farm will offer grass-fed beef, pork, poultry, eggs, sausage and cheese, all organically and humanely raised. Other favorites include locally raised honey from Charter Grove Honey Farm and French pastries from the nuns of the Fraternite Notre Dame.

Locally made arts and crafts will be available, including jewelry, ceramics, rugs and handmade soaps. The used book sale will offer children’s and adult titles, with prices ranging from 25 cents to $1.

Soup, bread and drinks will be available for purchase, and there will be live music all day on the stage.

For information, contact Kenney at 815-793-0950 or dkenney53@hotmail.com.

There is still room for a few more vendors at the November, December, February and March markets. Local farmers and artisans should contact the church office at 815-756-7089 or office@uufdekalb.org.
