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!
Along with tonight’s sweet corn, Champaign Berry will also have peaches for sale!
Pull right in the market driveway, and grab the season’s loveliness!
If you are not a market customer, this week, please pull directly up to where they will be set up, so that market customers can stay in their car line for me to load up their orders!
