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!

I’ve spent the weekend doing all things fall like, getting things organized, cleaned, decorating with pumpkins, and enjoyed some girlfriend time with a group of my pals!
Now, I am getting back to business, and on this amazing Monday, I have to say that you all are kicking ass at this market!!
This makes your market manager so very happy!!!
Don’t forget that much of this excitement is over the addition of Old Souls Farm with their amazing lettuce!!
Don’t miss out!! Let’s see how high we can get this week’s market!!
