First United Methodist Church and First Baptist Church in downtown Jefferson City are located near the heart of America, but on Saturday they played host to cultures from as far away as Chile, Uganda and Bangladesh.

The cultures arrived in the form of several crafts and pieces of native art sold at the Amani Fair Trade Market the two churches are hosting this weekend. The markets will continue today at both churches from 9 a.m. until noon.
