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!

Rainy Days and Mondays

Hanging around,
Nothing to do but frown.
Rainy days and Mondays always get me down.
(Carpenters-Rainy Days and Mondays)

Jump in your way back machine, take yourself to the year, 1975, and find me, with one of my very first albums that my mother let me pick from her Columbia Records Club, and then find me, the album playing on my little turn table that opened up like a little case…not to be confused with the now Crossley turntables…this was the original, then put a hairbrush in my hand, place me in front of my mirror, see my Marcia Brady hair, bell bottoms, and listen to me belt out this tune…

Fast forward to the now…Mondays always get me down, and add in the rain, and there you have it…

So, why not put on this song, take a bit of time, and put a smile into this rainy day Monday, by placing your market orders…
