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!
Wrap It Up!
It’s Wednesday morning!! The market will be closing at 8am!!
Don’t forget that this is the holiday weekend heading straight for us!! Do you have everything you may need for your celebrations?
Grilling, relaxing, traveling, entertaining…you need us!! Go, get your orders in!!
ALSO…THE YMCA IS ON SHUTDOWN, THIS WEEK!! It happens, every year!! But, it never messes up our market. Vendors can still bring product, the market will still be there for pick up, and customers can still come in to grab their orders.
We thank the YMCA, and their staff, for allowing us to continue during their weeks of shutdown!!
