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!
Good morning, lovelies!
Just a reminder that if you ordered, this week, your pick up is this evening, 4pm-6pm!
Or, Friday, 10am-12pm, OR, Saturday, 10am-4pm! Just let me know if you need to be a Friday or Saturday pick up!
Also, this evening, at market pick up, IF IT IS NOT RAINING, Champaign Berry will be there with sweet corn, again!! And, you didn’t have to be an ordering customer, this week to get your fix!! Just drive straight up to Cathy, and she will be ready to load your car with the goodness!
AND…remember that the market is taking it’s annual summer vacation, starting after tonight’s market pick up. The vendors are involved in the fair, and other festivals, and we all always need this time of rest from the market…
See you, tonight, at market pick up…
