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!
Hello, I Love You...
Hello, I love you…
Cue up the old vinyl, because this is the song that’s been playing in my head since the market, this afternoon…
It was so lovely to be back out with all of you, helping with orders, chatting, laughing, and seeing all of your lovely faces.
It truly was a great homecoming for your market manager!!
I am opening the market for another round of good times, and good food…get those orders in, and join in the fun that is the market!!
