Now in its ninth year, UCU is a bi-annual indie marketplace with over 100 vendors participating, ranging from jewelers to plush doll makers, aprons to paper goods, candles to art, food, buttons, wallets and so much more.

Complete vendor list is here for your persusal and plan of attack. The first 100 visitors in line receive a sweet swag bags and new this year, the UCU crew is sponsoring a food drive to help fight hunger and is urging shoppers to bring in a non-perishable food item to donate.
