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!
The six o’clock alarm would never ring.
But six rings and I rise,
Wipe the sleep out of my eyes…

Monday Love with Monday Vibes
Hello to this Monday, launching a new week, after a weekend of beautiful weather, a lovely Father’s Day of celebrations, and hoping you had a boatload of fun activities, or a peaceful and relaxation filled few days.
Now that the week is upon us, it’s time to get those market orders in!
Coming off of a big weekend, perhaps looking at a stressful week, or an overly scheduled few days, why not make it easy on yourself, and do all of your local ordering, right here, saving you multiple stops, driving, crowds, chances of products being sold out or not stocked, and soaring grocery costs. Our market offers one stop shopping. Healthy selections. Local roots. Easy, friendly pick up. And, vendors who are dedicated to you, by supplying the best products, while realizing you are concerned about everything, right now, and aiming to keep their own costs down, just to help with your load.
We operate this little local market of love, just for you, and we’ve been taking care of you, in these last 11 years, and are pleased that you continue to come back, so that we can continue to put your best interests and needs, at the front and center of this market.
