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!

A HUGE thank you to all of you who placed orders, this week!! You are bringing such love, fun, and excitement back to the market, on your end, and I hope that we are bringing it back to you!!
Tonight, we have many customers, and much product. Your market managers will be onsite, handing out your orders, but we need to groove out of there, by 5:15ish, as we are kicking off a three day catering event, and tonight is night numero uno!! So, if you are at the Y, after we leave, your orders will be grouped together…look on the shelves, the fridge, and the freezer…but, we hope we get to see all of you before we leave!!
As always…thank you for being so amazing!!
