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 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!

Today…a word from your market manager…

First, if you are thinking about dinner rolls for your Thanksgiving holiday, consider your favorite market manager, and hippie bakestress. You can order my rolls, for this week’s market, pop them into your freezer, and they will be lovely, and like just baked, when you pull them out for your guests…

Just a thought on this Saturday morning.

And, don’t stop with dinner rolls…our market has so many, many offerings for your holiday needs, and beyond…
