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 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 even if time has passing me by a lot
I couldn’t care less about the dues you say I got
Tomorrow I’ll pay the dues for droppin’ my load
A pie in your face for bein’ a sleepy bulltoad…
(Lovin’ Spoonful-Daydream)

Soooooo….I had a super post, all ready to go, to welcome in the spring weather, to shed sunshine all over your day, and to talk about growth, green, golden tones…but, as usual, Mother Nature has the last laugh.

Happy first day of spring…happy day of incoming snow, ice, wind…yes, the winter that wouldn’t leave. The spring teases, the winter crushes.

Anyway…we just keep all warm and cozy in our little online world. The market is rolling, the orders are spinning, and it’s the perfect way to stay out of the cold, out of the big stores, and staying in with local food, nutrition, and value. All with the ease of ordering, picking it up with ease, and getting smiles and chatting from your lovely market managers, and your Y staff…can you get that anywhere else?

Ok…go dream your own daydream about spring…but first…groove us your order…
