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!
That’s right, my market kit kats…it’s Wednesday morning, and that means we will be closing the market at 8am, today!!
There is still time to peruse the products, vendors, and all that we offer…I love seeing your smiling faces on Thursday pick up day, so get it in gear, and make your order happen!!
