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

Many of the local farmers and artisans are returning to this year’s market. One of the popular highlights is the fresh grass-fed beef, pork, poultry, eggs, sausage and cheese from Hasselmann Family Farm – all organically and humanely raised. Other crowd favorites include locally raised honey from Charter Grove Honey Farm and French pastries from the nuns of the Fraternite Notre Dame.

The used book sale also will be back. A variety of children’s and adult titles, with prices ranging from 25 cents to $1 will be available.

Soup, bread and drinks will be for sale and locally made arts and crafts will be available, including jewelry, ceramics, rugs and handmade soaps.

In addition to the vendors and activities, there will be live music on stage all day. A variety of local musicians will share their talent – from piano to steel guitar, and more.

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

There still is room for a few more vendors at the December, February and March markets. Interested local farmers and artisans should contact the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of DeKalb office at 815-756-7089 or office@uufdekalb.org.
