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!
Whoa was it gorgeous today or what? I know it can’t last but all things need a rest right? Winter is a time for regrouping so we should welcome the change of seasons to slow down a bit.
Please check out our new items and enjoy! Don’t forget we have many items that would make a great compliment to any meal, special or everyday, for this week and next. A reminder that the market will be open this week but will take one week off for the holiday next week so order extra if needed for pickup this Thursday. See you Thursday at the Y!
