UUFD Winter Farmers Market

UUFD Winter Farmers’ Market with Artisan Crafts, Fresh Baked Goods, and Used Book Sale: An Opportunity to Support Local Farmers and Artists

The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of DeKalb, 158 North 4th Street, will be hosting a Winter Farmers’ Market with local artisans and book sale, 9am to 3pm on Saturday December 14. Admission is $1.

“This market has become an annual DeKalb tradition, and we’re really looking forward to the warm and festive atmosphere,” says Dorothy Coleman, who is stepping into Dan Kenney’s former role this year as Market Coordinator. “This is the perfect time to take care of your holiday shopping by buying locally produced arts and crafts, as well as used books and delicious baked goods.”

Many of the local farmers and artisans who have participated in previous years are returning this year. One of the popular market 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, delicious French pastries from the nuns of the Fraternite Notre Dame, and baked goods from the local Greek Orthodox Church..

The popular used book sale will also be returning. The book sale offers a variety of children’s and adult titles, with prices ranging from $ .25 to $1. Soup, bread, and drinks will be available for purchase.

Locally made arts and crafts will also be available, including jewelry, ceramics, rugs, and handmade soaps.

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

 

“It is important to shop local,” says Coleman. “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.” 

Studies show that when you spend money with a locally owned and operated business, 60% of the money stays and is circulated in the community; and when you spend money at a chain store, only 40% or less stays in the area.
