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!
Beach Baby, Beach Baby...
I’m singing all kinds of old school songs because I am away, at the beach, on a much needed vacation!
But, I return, tomorrow, and will be back in action, on Thursday!
So, while I am finishing up my last walks on the beach, I need you to get your orders in!
We close at 6am, tomorrow morning…
And, I will see you, on Thursday!
