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!
Just a reminder that you can continue to place orders, all week, up until next Tuesday at 8am!
Due to the winter storm, last night/this morning, and more on the way, we are not running market pick up OR deliveries, this week!!
We will return to normal, next week, with Thursday pick up, and Friday pick up/deliveries!!
Also, while you have more time, don’t forget that Ehlre Bird is running specials on their beautiful woodwork!!
