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!
How can you do that??
Well, you can order from our market!!
On Thursday, during the hours of 4pm-6pm, you can also have the chance to shop in our Christmas Vendor Pop Up Market, in the lobby of the YMCA, this Thursday, during market pick up!!
Even if you do not need to order, this week, you can still grab a friend, a family member, a neighbor, and plan to shop our Christmas Pop Up Market for gifts that are local, unique, and that reflect our dedication to our growers, producers, artisans…
