The Weblog

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!

It's Magic

It’s magic you know
Never believe it’s not so
It’s magic you know
Never believe it’s not so…
(It’s Magic-Pilot)

Keeping with the magical theme to our October/Halloween play list…we have this gem from 1975. If you were a pre-teen in the 70s, and you lived by AM radio, this song was it!

And, maybe it’s magic, maybe this market was just due for a huge comeback, maybe it’s these sparkling weblogs that I am back to writing, maybe it’s the amazing vendors of the market, but whatever this magical spark is, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!

This market has bounced back by crazy numbers, and we are forever in awe of our loyal, magical, and, returning customers from so long ago!!

Here’s to putting the magic in you day!

And…the market closes for the week, in a half hour, at 8am…

Go work your magic!
