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!
Happy Monday evening!!
As we ease out of last night’s snowy, ice filled roads, and the Super Bowl, we are now at Monday evening, looking ahead for the week.
Your market manager has just poured a glass of wine, and is perusing her market order…it’s the perfect kind of evening for you to do the same!!
Shop in comfort, in local ease, in nutritional excitement!!
We are here, and the vendors would love you to throw them some love!!
