The Weblog

The local foods movement is alive and well in Champaign County! Here are some updates on other projects while we finalize our virtual market:

Local Producers Map:
Our local producers map is ready for publication and you will soon be able to find it on gochampaign.com. Copies will be distributed around the community, in the local telephone book, and other “hangouts”. The guide lists the location and contact information for nearly 50 local producers within our county. The map was a project of the Local Food Council and printed with the help of some local sponsors including the Monument Square District, Champaign Bank, the Community Improvement Corporation, the Chamber of Commerce, the Farm Bureau and others. It is a great start to finding a local source for Champaign County’s finest!

Tuesday Groove


I remember when I was in college, every little bar in my college town had a, Groovy Tuesday. Drinks were cheap, free, depending on who you knew. The music was all groovy themed, and it’s where you went to kick away the remnants of Mondays, and to jump start your week, going into Wednesday.

Groovy Tuesday…I still think that Tuesdays are groovy, Mondays are horrid, and Wednesdays are just holding patterns until you reach Thursdays. The actual beginning of the week’s end.

I think it’s fitting to have this market’s last full day, each week, take place on the Tuesday groove.

Make it extra groovy by getting your orders in before 6am, tomorrow morning.

You don’t want to waste all of the grooviness that the market has to offer…

Our market, the vendors, the customers, the products…your own personal groove line…

XOXO,

Monday, Monday...


Has it been a moody Monday for you? A go get ‘em kind of Monday? An easy Monday, or a bury your head kind of Monday?

No matter what kind of Monday you are experiencing, we can put some peaceful love into the beginning of your week, to take you into the rest of the week to make things all easy!

Get your market orders in, and your week will thank you!

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam

Happy, Happy Thursday!!


I was shopping, the other day, and the place was playing tunes, and one of them was the song, Happy!

It was infectious to bop around to, and it’s how this market makes me feel…just always a big Happy dance!

Let’s all get happy, together, and groove our orders in!!!

Let’s do this…let’s all get…Happy!

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam

The Barkery!


Just a note that going forward, if you need to order dog treats from Kim, at The Barkery, orders need to be in by Tuesday evenings, at 7pm!

She makes them all fresh, per order, and in her process, the treats need a drying processs which takes time!

So, remember, if orders contain her dog treats, make sure to get them in by Tuesdays!

Kim appreciates your business, and just wants to bring you the best product!

XOXO,

Keep It Coming, Love!


Keep it comin’ love
Keep it comin’ love
Don’t stop it now, don’t stop it no
Don’t stop it now, don’t stop it
Keep it comin’ love
Keep it comin’ love
Don’t stop it now, don’t stop it no
Don’t stop it now, don’t stop it…
(KC and the Sunshine Band)

And, how I feel about this week’s market! It’s a great market, and I want to remind you that we close out the orders, tomorrow, at 6am! So, if you still need to keep the love coming our way, you need to get your orders ready!

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam
