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!
A New Day Will Dawn
For those who stand long,
and the forest will echo with laughter…
We are upon a new day to dawn, the brink of a new year, another year in this market!
Was your holiday a love filled one? Did you eat well, give unto others, and love those around you?
This time of year makes me so happy to see so much kindness. I also love to see the return of our market hours and weeks, and the excitement of the dawn of a new year in our market history!
We thank you for being along for the ride!
One announcement fior the dawn of a new year, is that we are moving along without Seusher Hill Herbs. Joe and Charlene have decided to leave our little local market of love, and we wish them well, an would like to thank Charlene for her participation in helping to manage our market in the early years!
So, with every dawn, there is a rebirth…and, I feel that for this market!
2018….the year that brings all exciting things!
Tonight, I open the market!! Let us be your new dawn…
