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!
Monday Dose Of Magic!
It’s a Monday, and time to throw some magic into the day that begins another week!!
It’s been such a crazy, hot weekend, and I know that ordering may be the last thing on your list, but just think of all that you will be missing if you let this heat, humidity, and general end of August blues get the best of you!
We are set to start looking into September in just a few days, and the market is crazy with produce, and all of the seasonal/year round goodness. I know that I forgot to place my order, last week, and I was so sad on Thursday…and, cursing myself that I had to shop, elsewhere, for a few items!
Make the magic happen on this Monday, and conjure up your orders…the happiness it will produce is just like a magic potion…
