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!

Long Monday

Gonna be a long Monday
Sittin’ all alone on a mountain
By a river that has no end
Gonna be a long Monday
Stuck like the tick of a clock
That’s come unwound, again
(John Prine)

Well, here are, racing into another Monday, and I’ve got John Prine as my backdrop music.

The market is open, and ready for your orders, and while you are singing to your own long Monday, make the week easier, brighter, and healthier by shopping all the loveliness of that this locally grown market has to offer!

I love seeing all your familiar names roll in as you place your weekly orders.
