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!
Good evening, lovely market customers!
This is your Monday evening reminder that the market will be closing for weekly orders, tomorrow, at 8am! Don’t forget to get them in, or it will be another week before you get all of our market love!!
And, remember that this is Blue Jacket’s only week, this month, so get that cheese!!
And…your market manager will be in vacation mode, next week, so that I can dedicate the week to preparing for the big farm dinner…An Evening Of Farm Elegance, that takes place on June 18! So…get all of your Cosmic orders in, this week!!
Much love to you all…
