Gift-giving feels better when you know who made item and you can support someone who really cares about their product. This time of year there are lots of different craft fairs and artisan markets that happen, but this one is different because the makers get to keep 100% of their proceeds, because it's free for them to participate.

It's really cool that the Bean Cycle hosts The Freedom Market. This will be the 8th one. Saturday, December 10th from 9am to 3pm, get an amazing cup of coffee and shop soaps, ceramics, letterpress goods and more from 15 local makers! There will also be free cookies and you can shop new and used books.

The Bean Cycle is at 144 North College Avenue in Downtown Fort Collins.
