On September 6 & 7 it will be Hobnob Harvest Market time! The Effingham County Fairgrounds in Altamont, Illinois, is once again home to the fall market. Hobnob is a mix of creative handmade goods, artisan food, vintage finds and fashion trucks.

Every style can be found at the market – from fresh farmhouse, midcentury, primitive,and modern to bohemian/gypsy. Vintage finds range from button size to oversized antique tables and cupboards. Fresh Pinterest-style handmade goods are found around every corner and include creative home décor, funky jewelry, hand-poured candles, and edible treats. Several boutique clothing vendors round out the market and their mobile boutiques will be overflowing with trendy fall clothing and accessories.

Hobnob Market vendor booths are boutique style and are beautifully displayed like mini shops. Customers enjoy the unique style of each space while browsing along and hunger doesn’t stand a chance with several artisan food vendors ready to supply delicious meals and sweets. Tuscan Hills Winery from Effingham will have a big batch of their famous caramel apple sangria ready plus signature blended wines and beer.

New additions to the Hobnob Harvest Market this year – a balloon master making all sorts of animal & creature creations. Kids will also enjoy a hair braiding bar, face painting  and yard games.
