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 A Jam Session!
Good morning, lovely market customers!
It’s a beautiful Monday morning, full of warm temperatures, lovely sunrise, and it comes off of fun filled weekend that I have spent with out of town pals!
It was a weekend filled with music, hitting some live music venues, and enjoying a few jam sessions…get my tie in, today?
With Champaign Berry Farm offering their Peach Habanero Jam, and their Peach Jam from their recent crop, and The Shire Farm with their newly added jams and jellys, Elderberry Jam from S&S Naturals, and then JC Growers Gourmet Garlic Glaze…it’s all just a jam session of flavors, colors, and delightfulness…the perfect culinary notes…
