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!
Astral Weeks…Van Morrison…the whole album…perfect for this rainy, windy Sunday. Pull it up, listen to it all. It’s such a hauntingly, soulful album. One of my all time favorites.
So, the market is groovin’ along, you all are ordering your Easter goods as you are also ordering your weekly goods.
It’s been a beautiful weekend to think about the incoming spring, the new growing season, and all of the seasonal products that will begin to drift back into the market.
Also, there are new woodworking offerings from Homecomer Traditions, along with new offerings from CrisMiss Farms!!
This market just continues to sail into the mystic, connecting, each and every week with you, our lovely customers.
I will update you, as the weeks come, with returning vendors, and their offerings.
I hope you have a relaxing, good vibes day…
