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!
It’s Tuesday evening, and that means I am giving you the one hour last call before the market closes at 8pm, this evening!
I’ll see you on the flip side…just like in the old days of late night shenanigans in clubs, with the staff yelling, drink up, go home, lights up, New York/New York blasting…Closing Time…
