BUTLER — The Prairie Peddler Festival, nestled in the woods just outside of Butler, drew a large crowd Saturday as attendees browsed more than 200 craft and food vendors.

The outdoor market, which continues Sunday and next weekend, features vendors selling holiday decorations and home d├ęcor in country, farmhouse and primitive styles.

Additional wares included handmade goods like jewelry, candles and foodstuffs.

Food truck fare from noodles to elephant ears, wood-fired pizza to biscuits and French fries is available with live music.

The festival will also run on Sept. 24, 30 and Oct. 1 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
