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!
Just a quick note to thank you, the customers, your other market manager, and my father, for all pulling together for a great market pick up!!
It allowed me to stay in the kitchen, working, on prep work for this weekend’s catering!!
I love the teamwork that I have instilled in everyone!
And, just a note…I am remaining on vacation mode until after….drumroll…. My daughter’s wedding, on the 18th!
So much to do, along with getting my staff organized, prep the menu, and then step aside to enjoy being mother of the bride!
I will still be managing the market, and will return, later in the month!!
Hugs and kisses….and, opening the market for the week!!
