Join your local farmers, beekeepers, bakers, coffee roasters, and pizza makers every Tuesday for fresh, local food in the heart of Downtown Champaign. From 3:30-6:30 you can pick up veggies, fruits, honey, flowers, baked goods, coffee, and more, all grown, raised or produced within 150 miles of Champaign.
Get a taste of the market each week at the Sampling Tent, and meet your local organizations and businesses in the Community Tent. You'll also find our seating area where you can hang out and enjoy the atmosphere, music, and let the little ones play at our kids' table. Market Seedlings, our monthly kids' program returns on the last Tuesday of the month with activities with Common Ground Food Co-op and the Champaign Public Library.
We'll also offer SNAP matching once again. Swipe your Link card at the Land Connection tent for tokens you can spend at the market, and we'll match your purchase up to $20 EVERY WEEK. Plus, at the second Market of every month, we'll offer an additional match--that's up to $40 extra to spend on fresh, seasonal produce.
