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!
Pleasant Valley Sunday
The local rock group down the street
Is trying hard to learn their song
They serenade the weekend squire
Who just came out to mow his lawn
Another pleasant valley Sunday…
(Pleasant Valley Sunday-The Monkees)
Need a Sunday playlist to kick your day into gear? Add this to your Sunday songs…and, while you are at it, pop it on while you are perusing the market!
The Sunday weather looks gloomy, dreary, and uncertain…make your Sunday, truly pleasant, by trusting us to help you through the week.
Take the morning to get organized, make your list, and then breeze through…
