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!
This is the one week that local really takes front and center!
Tomorrow, the Champaign County Fair opens for the season, shining the light on all of our local pride!
Go out, this week, to support the fair, and this great community, while celebrating what it means to be totally local!
The market is open, we know you are busy, but let us put the ease into your week!
