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!
The market will be closing at 8am!! Plenty of time to get orders in!
And, have a sunshine kind of day!!
Baby, It Ain't Over Til It's Over!
A little Lenny Kravitz song implant to announce that the fun is not yet over!
Why? Well, your market managers, and vendors have decided that why cut the fun off at 10pm on Tuesdays? We are now extending the market until Wednesday mornings, at 8am!!
We hope this will help the people who get so sad when they forget to order onTuesday evenings!
So, our new market hours are opening on Thursday evenings, closing on Wednesday mornings!
So, now that we have given you even more ease of ordering local, show us some love all the way into the morning!
Go ahead, sing it to me….‘Cause, Baby, it ain’t over til it’s over….
It only feels like a Monday!!
I hope that all of you had super holiday weekends!!
I am slowly returning to reality, after 5 days away!!
So, since I continue to think it’s a Monday, I wanted to remind all of you that it actually is Tuesday, and that means we need you to get your orders in!
We love you, and don’t want you to miss the fun!!
The market is open!!!!
Your market manager is at a music festival, but the market is open, and we want to see your orders!!
Time Is Ticking!
Just a reminder to get your orders in!

Hey, Hey, What Can I Do?
Just a little Led Zeppelin action, this morning!
Go ahead, grab your own Zeppelin tune, and turn it up! While you are at it, turn up the heat on your ordering game! Why? Well, first, it’s Tuesday, the last day to get in the game, this week!
Second, the holiday weekend begins o. Friday, and you will want to make sure you are stocked and ready with local delights, from this little local market of love!
You may have noticed that my products are in vacation mode! I have never done vacation mode! It freaked me out to tap the button! But, I am actuallly going on vacation!!
I will be music festival bound on Thursday!! Camping, music, fun, wardrobe changes..it’s all in my weekend plan! But, I will return, next week!!

Do You Miss Me?
Or, should I say, do you miss my Weblog ramblings?
My computer is getting the RX love that it needs, and, after a whirlwind of activity, the Hippie market manager is cooling her jets for just a bit!!
Soon, I will begin to ramble on, continue my trip Down The Rabbit Hole, and blog more frequently, again!!
Until then, this market opens, tonight, with amazing products, spring time bounty, and all the local goodness you could want!!
And, soon, we may get a new cheese vendor!! Will know more when I chat with her, tomorrow!! Thank you to the Miami County Locally Grown market for sharing!!
So, with tonight’s entry, I open the market!!
