The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of DeKalb will host an indoor farmers market with arts and crafts at the church, 158 N. Fourth St. in DeKalb, from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday.

This market will include a plant and seed exchange led by DeKalb County Community Gardens. Attendees are welcome to bring a plant or seed and take a plant or seeds. The market also is a chance to support local farmers and artisans while buying healthy foods and unique crafts.

The market will include grass-fed beef, free-range chickens and eggs from the Hasselmann Farm. Montalbano Farms of Sandwich will have early fresh produce and a chance to sign up for this year’s CSA boxes.

There will be locally produced honey, elderberry cordial and elderberry jam. There will be several artists and crafters selling items including homespun yarn from DeKalb.

Fresh-baked French pastries and other goods will be available as well. Among the craft choices are handmade jewelry, knitted items, birdhouses, suncatchers, goat-milk soap, homespun yarn, weaving tools and woodcarvings. There will be more than 30 vendors, some joining the market for the first time. There also will be a used book sale, live music and hot food for purchase.

Admission is $1 at the door. For more information, call Kenney at 815-793-0950.
