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!
It’s the Tuesday that feels like a Monday, so don’t be a day behind in your market orders!
I am coming out of my wedding haze from Saturday, and am full steam ahead for my daughter’s wedding, September 18!
But, first…I also need to get my orders in!
Let’s all make this week a bit easier with the happiness of the market!
