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!
Here we are, already a Tuesday that feels like a Monday that feels like I just stepped out of Friday!!
I hope that you all had an enjoyable long weekend, remembered the importance of the weekend, and also took advantage of the beautiful weather, and the star filled night skies.
I hosted my first micro private music campout in my backyard, and it was so fun, freeing to back among people having a good time, and dancing, laughing, chatting…it was music to my spirit.
And now…crazy that it’s already Tuesday but make sure to get your orders in by 8am!! I have to follow my own advice, and go straight to ordering, from here!
I will see all who ordered, at Thursday’s pick up!!
