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!
Cosmic Weekly Trivia
It’s that time, again!! Time for your weekly chance to win a free Cosmic product, of your choice!!!
All leading up to our 10th year anniversary of the market!! I love all of your excitement, each and every week, and all of your answers!!
This week, we are still visiting the years that I used to travel to various farmers’ markets, in my yellow VW bug, selling my breads, and bringing the Cosmic fun, each and every time.
I gave you the Cosmic Classic Five, a week or so ago. Within that group, there was one of the bread varieties that was always a summer sell out at each market!! It was the one that customers waited in line to grab, and I couldn’t bake enough of it in the summer months.
Which Cosmic bread was the farmers’ market darling, no matter where I set up?
Remember…you must be an ordering customer for the week, to win!!
