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 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!

Hey Now!


It’s Tuesday, and that means you have until tomorrow, at 6am, to make your orders happen!

Let’s get groovy!

XOXO,

Happy Sunday!


And, Happy Father’s Day, and happy summer break, and happy everything!

I know it’s a holiday like weekend, but don’t let that deter you from your market ordering!

You don’t want the market to close on Wednesday, without you on board with your orders!

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam

Cold, Rain, and ??


What’s next on this mid day in June?

Let’s hope we begin to see a climb in temperatures, some sunshine, and some summertime fun!

The market is opening, again, for the week, and we say hello, to Kennedy Farms, with their seasonal produce! They will be adding things for the week!

We also have fresh cut flowers back on the market, and I saw them, this evening, and they are beautiful!

So much to order! So much to bring the sunshine back into your days!

Remember…as the season continues, more and more produce will be making it’s way to us!

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam

Today’s Orders!


Hello!

If you are a market customer, today, I will have all orders arranged for each customer, but you will need to grab your own orders, and pay at the desk, unless you keep a card on file!

Thank you!
Cosmic Pam

The Earth Laughs In Flowers!


And…fresh florals are back!

Flowers, and hey, flour!

We have gluten free flour! Or, if baking your own isn’t your gig, we have delicious gluten free products!

XOXO,

The Sun Is Up...


…the sky is blue, it’s beautiful, and so are you…
(Dear Prudence-The Beatles)

But, really…have you been outside, this morning? It’s so lovely…

And, the other lovely thing? Getting your orders in!!

I got a text from Beth, at Harrigan’s Harvest, and this could very well be the last week for asparagus!!! ORDER!!!

And, don’t forget, you also need fresh lettuce, from Old Souls for all of your salad needs!!

And, it’s grilling weather, and we’ve got that covered with all of the frozen meat selections!

Breads? Soups? Sweets? Eggs? Maple Syrup? Soaps? Oils? You need it ALL!!! Dog treats for the furry friends? Pies?

…won’t you come out to play?

Go ahead…crank up the song, you know you are singing it!

XOXO,

Don’t Let Go!


Just sitting outside, enjoying this perfect weather, sipping a glass of wine and listening to Jerry Garcia, hence the Weblog title!

“Oo-wee, This feelin’s killin’ me;
Ah shucks, I wouldn’t stop for a million bucks.”

I just can’t stop the love that I have for this market, the customers, the vendors, and the products!

Now, let’s get this lovefest rolling another week, as I open the market for all of your amazing orders!

Don’t let go…just keep showing us the love!

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam

Let The Sunshine In


When the moon is in the Seventh House
And Jupiter aligns with Mars
Then peace will guide the planets
And love will steer the stars
This is the dawning of the age of Aquarius
Age of Aquarius…
(The 5th Dimension)

We are on a roll with the beautiful sunshine! Let your spirits soar, and make us your source for your inner sunshine, while you take in the physical sunshine!

We’ve got so much to choose from, with more and more to come, each week!

Go ahead…let the sunshine in, and then, get your orders in!

Another Happy Thursday!


Made even better by opening the market for another week of ordering fun!!

Thank you to Stoll Farm/Vernon Family Beef for coming out to give samples, and chat with the customers, and Y members, about their grass fed beef, their story, and their recipes for their product!

Ok…it may be raining/sunshine/crazy out there, but right here, we are always steady, and ready for your market love!

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam
