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 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!

Happy Monday!

Hoping you have all had a lovely weekend, and are refreshed and ready for the week ahead!

I am in Florida, celebrating my grandson’s first birthday, but will see you all at the market on Thursday!

Also, a few announcements!

We have a new vendor, ABCD Woodworking with beautiful charcuterie boards! Perfect for parties, and gift giving!

Also, we welcome, The Great White Pumpkin with their selections of pumpkins, gourds, and winter squash!

Sadly, we say goodbye to Davidson Family Growers, and I am now back to looking for a year round lettuce producer!

This market has so much to offer, so let’s get our weekly orders in, and I will see you on Thursday!

Season Of The Witch

When I look out my window
Many sights to see
And when I look in my window
So many different people to be
That it’s strange, so strange
You’ve got to pick up every stitch…

It’s that time of the year, lovelies…it’s October, the weather is just perfect, the colors are about to go golden, and then, yes…we head into Halloween…the thrill of the month…

Today is the first Tuesday of October, and you still have time to get your weekly orders in!

Oh! Did you see?? Oberly Brothers are back with their potatoes…take advantage!!

Follow me, won’t you, to get those last minute orders in…

Must be the season of the witch…
