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 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!

Must Be The Season...

When I look out my window
Many sights to see…
(Donovan-Season Of The Witch)

Well, hey there…we slipped into October, just like that. And, with October being one of my favorite months, I say, come on in. Grab a seat. Enjoy the colors. Take in the golden hue that begins to take effect. Get groovy with Halloween, if that’s your bag, and let it all just wash over you.

It’s Monday, and your market manager has started her annual October playlist, including one of my favorites, Season Of The Witch…go ahead, just try to get this groovy get down Halloween-esque song out of your head.

I am decorating my house, I’m anticipating out of town friends coming in, and I am planning all kinds of shenanigans for them…

But, first, let’s get this market all ordered up, and ready for Thursday’s pick up!! It’s a bit cloudy, this morning, and while I am enjoying the last of my coffee, listening to October tunes, and planning the week, I am also working in my market order.

We have so much to offer…so much to usher in this golden month of loveliness…

You’ve got to pick up every stitch… must be the season of the witch…
