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!
Support Your Local Artists
Don’t forget…the online market closes, tomorrow morning, at 8am, for Champaign Locally Grown!!! Be a part of our Artistic Food Movement….
Because, at our little local online market, we are all artists. We are all crafting our creations. Growing our creations. Producing our creations.
We are a tight knit group of vendors with the same vision, the same hopes, and the same determination in this whole local scene.
We know that amidst the past year, many more local gigs have popped up, we know that many, many online “local” services can have goods and food delivered to your doors, and we SO VERY MUCH appreciate the trust, support, and love that you give us, each and every week!
You help us grow, you help us educate you, you help us continue this whole local scene, each and every week.
It’s Monday, and you have until tomorrow morning, at 8am, to get your orders in!! So many products, so many vendors, all inside one local greenhouse/marketplace…all so exciting to be a part of this whole adventure that was started many, many years ago!!
