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 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!

Suddenly, It's Monday

Your market manager is making her way back to realty!

I am so sorry that the market opened, late, this weekend! I was secluded in a lovely lake house in North Carolina, with the most epic of high school reunions!

I had zero internet service, and while at first, I freaked out, but then I gave in, and lived and laughed and loved my favorite people who were the first loves of my life!!

It has been so long since I have let myself go be free, away, on vacation!

So, while I hope you all understand, this volunteer market manager had the time of her life!

Go, order, the seasonal items are rockin!
