The Weblog

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!

The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

Hello, little local market of love customers!

Your market manager is crazy busy with baking, catering, and delivering but I wanted to take this time to wish everyone a very happy, love filled holiday!!

I feel like we are all a little family with local vibes, and love filled jives!! I value the customers, vendors, and staff of the YMCA for becoming friends, local believers, and market makers!!

We are the doers and shakers of this local food scene, and I am proud to boast that this market remains strong, vibrant, and dear to my heart!!

Thank you for allowing me to manage your market, allow me access into your lives with this Weblog, and allowing our market to serve you, each and every week!

Also, a reminder that we are closed, this week, but will reopen on December 28th!!

While we approach the new year, we approach year 6 in our market history!! We could not do it without each of you!! The Local Gang!!

May you each know good health, love, and compassion in the new year!

This is my love letter to you…
