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!
And, Just Like That...
We are back!! Live, and ready to take your weekly orders!!
And, may I just take a minute to thank you all, so much, for really helping to make this market reach new levels of total intensity?
So far, in this new year, the customers have come out for our weekly local fun!! We have new customers, we have returning customers, we have the customers who shop from us, weekly.
You should all give yourselves some much needed love because we love the love that you show us, constantly!!
OK…here we go, again…another week, another chance to show us how local you can go!!
