Champaign Farmers' Market

The Land Connection Champaign Farmers' Market has returned for another season of great local food! Come by the parking lot by Neil & Main in Downtown Champaign and get your groceries fresh and direct from the farmer!

This year we've got new hours, from 3:30-6:30. Even easier to pick up fresh ingredients for a delicious dinner!

Find out what's happening at the market this week here.

This season we're launching our new kids' program, Market Seedlings, the last Tuesday of every month. We're also partnering with local chefs to offer more cooking demonstrations and meal planning ideas, and once per month we'll be offering Triple Link Tuesday.

How can I help the market?

We need volunteers!  Looking for a great way to enjoy some fresh air on a Tuesday afternoon, get first dibs on the best produce, and help your community? We're looking for volunteers to help with the following tasks:

  • Market set-up (1:30-3:30) and/or tear down (6:15-7:30)
  • Greeting patrons at the market, helping shoppers locate products, counting patrons (3:30-6:30)
  • Running SNAP transactions (3:30-6:30)
  • Distributing fliers around town (anytime)

Email market@thelandconnection.org or call Sarah at 217-840-2128 to get involved!

Got food to sell? We're looking for produce, meat, cheese, eggs, or value added products made from local ingredients. Learn more about becoming a vendor here

The Champaign Farmers' Market gives you the chance during the work week to load up on fresh, local food, meet your farmers, taste local foods, learn more about community events, and enjoy great kids’ activities!

The market also offers recipe ideas and cooking demonstrations to build up your repertoire of easy meal plans with your favorite local produce!
Don't forget - we're still running our double SNAP benefits at this year's market - we'll match up to $20 in SNAP tokens - $40 to spend for only $20!

Starting May 16, we'll see you on Tuesdays from 3:30-6:30pm in Parking Lot M off Neil St. between Washington and Main (310-330 N. Neil) in Champaign!
