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!
Friday Song Implant
I’ve always been crazy but it’s kept me from going insane
Nobody knows if it’s something to bless or to blame
So far I ain’t found a rhyme or a reason to change
I’ve always been crazy but it’s kept me from going insane…
Our first song implant for the market week comes to us from customer, George King. George has been with us, for years, and he is our honey customer. I smile each time I see his order come in because it’s always honey, and I always love to see him in the car line because he has the best smile, and is always so friendly.
This is his song pick from Waylon Jennings…I’ve Always Been Crazy…and, I picked the last verse of the song, because well, doesn’t this fit all of us, just a bit? Maybe some, more than others, but I have to say…I do relate…lol.
The market is waiting for all of your lovely orders! I couldn’t sleep, for a bit, last night, and saw that some of you were also a bit on the sleepless train, as well, as there were so many midnight orders rolling in.
Happy Friday, and why not celebrate the little crazy in all of us…
