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!
Can't You Hear Me Knockin'?
Can’t you hear me knockin’ on your window
Can’t you hear me knockin’ on your door…
(Can’t You Hear Me Knockin’-Rolling Stones)
Go ahead, whatever you are doing, grab this song, turn it up, and let your soul just go…
Oh, and, while you are letting your soul go, picture me singing these words to you, because I am knockin’ on your doors, and windows, to remind you that you have until 8am, this morning, to place your orders!!
In a half hour, we close up shop for the week!! Don’t miss out…
