The Weblog

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!

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.

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam

Lovely Day


And I know it’s gonna be
A lovely day…

When the day that lies ahead of me
Seems impossible to face…
(Bill Withers)

It’s Tuesday, and this is your wake up call to have a lovely day, and forget about being blue, or feeling that the overwhelming week is impossible…we can help put the ease and the loveliness into your week, with your weekly orders from this little lovely local market…

Go ahead, you still have one hour, to get your weekly orders in…

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam

Hey, Hey!


It’s Thursday evening, another market pick up has come and gone, and now it’s time to reopen for the weekly orders!!

I have returned from vacation, and am back to baking with a limited menu, for a few weeks!! I will have certain items, available, because as you all may remember that this time, last year, I had my skin cancer surgery on my lip, and was out for some time, during recovery.

Well, sad to report that my poor face will need to go into another treatment, for a couple of weeks, to treat my entire face of more cells….not looking forward to it, and am not sure how I will be feeling with it all, so I am baking in a limited way, just because I love you all so very much!!

You will see all that I have to offer, when you log on to order!!

AND…drumroll…your favorite Pulled Pork is now back from Oakview Farm Meats!! That is an item that goes fast, so order up, and order to stock your freezers!!

Much love to all of you…and I look forward to getting through these next few weeks so I can be in full speed mode, again!!

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam

Monday, Monday!
