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!

Sun Comes Up, It's Tuesday Morning

Sun comes up, it’s Tuesday morning
Hits me straight in the eye…
(Cowboy Junkies)

Happy Tuesday on this sunshine filled day! A perfect autumn day just waiting to unfold, paint the day golden, and usher in that feel good, deep into October feeling.

I remember these fall days when I was in high school, and all you could think about was the last class of the day, and racing out to the parking lot, taking off for an afternoon of fun and mayhem, until evening obligations brought you home, again.

While you are enjoying this lovely day, the market is rocking and rolling, and will close at 8pm, this evening.

I took a bit of time to clean up more categories in the Bakery Section, including sorting our my own categories to make products easier to find!

Such lovely offerings from the market, and you don’t want to miss out…my Tuesday, today, not only your golden, honey hazed day, but make it your order day!
