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!
It’s your Wednesday calling…
So, once again we watch a blissful holiday weekend just float on by. I hope you were able to spend it exactly the way you wanted or needed.
And, if you are like me, you are now one day behind, thinking it’s a Tuesday on a Wednesday.
I know you were busy, and not thinking about ordering, or this market, but the good news is that you still have until 8am, this morning, to groove it all together.
We understand that holidays and holiday weekends take a toll on our thought process. That is why we want you to know that we are here, and we can help ease you into the weekend. Which is coming up, already, again…
