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 it…the feeling you get as you begin to wake up, and remember that you are not slowly waking up on a lazy Sunday. You are crash waking, right into a full blown Monday.
Make the transition a bit easier by vowing to take a few minutes to place an order with us! All of your local goods, in one place, with simple clicks of the keys!
I’m sitting here, coffee in one hand, my hair a mess, a million things on my Monday list of musts, and a chipmunk trapped in my lovely little powder room.
But, what am I going to do? Order. I know my week, at a glance, and once again, it’s a bit crazy. To make it less crazy, I need to simplify by getting some food ordered!!
Follow my lead…and please, throw me some tips on getting the chipmunk out of my life, and powder room…
