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!
Sandy, Oh Sandy...
Good rainy eve to each of you! Sure hoping Sandy is kind to the East coast and all of us. We hope she understands we meant no harm in being so unwelcome to her in our chatter over the last few days as she prepares to come ashore. Safe wishes for all of us and our extended families in harms way…
Check out the new items this week and some hot stuff in jalapeno land from JC Growers and a great pie from Bishop that is sure to please! We also welcome a non-traditional item of the cutest snowmen pillows around. I hope it isn’t a sign of what is coming the next few days but they are super! I have asked Bishop to bring a sample to the market Thursday so you can all give them a squeeze at market pickup!
Have a great week and be careful!
Thankful for you!
