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!
Howlin' For You
I must admit
I can’t explain
Any of these thoughts
Racing through my brain
But baby I’m howlin’ for you…
(Howlin’ For You-The Black Keys)
Continuing our October theme of Halloween, haunting, howling…and, what better song to continue on our party playlist for Halloween, than the Black Keys…Howlin’ For You…
But, seriously…this market? Yeah, it’s got me totally howlin’! Baby, I’m howlin’ for you! First…the beat of this market has turned up to crazy levels. The excitement is back. The customers were groovin’ and swingin’ and happy as a piece of Halloween candy, tonight!
We are back, we are totally taking this market back to it’s crazy levels, and I invite all of you to join in the howlin’ good time. The howlin’ fun.
We had the debut of Old Souls Farm lettuces…and, baby, let me tell you…a howlin’ treat. A feast for the eyes.
All of your favorite vendors had their products, in your baskets, and ready to rock and roll.
So, how are we going to do this week’s market? The same? Nah…let’s totally take this to the next level…let’s totally howl.
Go ahead…give me what you got…‘cause baby, I’m howlin’ for you…
*Go ahead…throw some Black Keys on, and you will totally get the vibe of my post, tonight…
