The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of DeKalb will hold its first Winter Farmers Market of the 2013- 2014 season from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Dec. 14. Admission is $1.
“This will be our largest market, as we have over 35 vendors,” organizer Dan Kenney said in a news release. “Many of the vendors are with the market for the first time. We also have another local farmer from DeKalb County joining us this year. Jeff Wielert of Bountiful Blessings Farm will have fresh produce, value-added items, as well as fresh evergreen wreaths for sale.”
Montalbano Farms of the Sandwich area will be on hand promoting its CSA boxes of fresh, organically grown produce. There also will be fresh, grass-fed, hormone-free beef from Hasselman Farms. Scott Hasselman also will sell farm-fresh eggs, free-range chicken, pork, and sausage, locally sourced cheese, local honey, and more, all organically and humanely raised.
In addition to the farmers, the market will offer merchandise from more than 30 artists and crafters from the DeKalb County area. There also will be baked goods, homemade breads, and many other items.
“We have vendors offering a great variety of items for sale, from metal jewelry to crocheted items, hooked rugs, goat soap, hats, original paintings, weaving supplies, and much, much more. I can’t begin to list all of the items available. It will be a great, fun market to attend,” Kenney said in the release.
There will be live music all day by a variety of local musicians. Hot food and beverages will be available.
“We are often complimented on the fun community atmosphere and what an enjoyable market it is,” Kenney said in the release. “We hope people stop by and join in the fun.”
