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!
Rainy Days and Tuesdays
It’s just that kind of dreary evening…sort of drizzling after a couple of days of rain. It’s not cold, outside, but looking at the dreariness, out the windows, makes me think it’s a bit on the chilly side.
So, why not get all comfy, grab your grocery list, and while you are enjoying this early ease into the fall season, place your orders, based on everything that we can help you check off your list.
It’s easy, it’s fun, it’s all from goodness that practically comes from your own backyard, and, you just have to breeze in, on Thursday, and grab your order while chatting it up with your market managers!
That’s right…we are back, we will be in action, and we can fill you in on what’s up in the local scene…like, oh, you know…the upcoming State Of The Plate!! We can explain it, sign you up, and get you on your way to tickets!!
All you have to do is pull us up, and get your ordering done…
The market closes at 8am, tomorrow morning, so don’t wait around, too long!! We want EVERYONE getting in on the fun!!
