Here are the programs for the Champaign Farmers Market’s 2020 season:
FRIENDS OF THE MARKET CAMPAIGN
Friends of the Market is your chance to support the Champaign Farmers Market directly. If you believe in this work and the importance of providing locally grown and produced foods to everyone in our community, then this is the perfect opportunity for you! Your donation will go directly to help fund the incentive programs and the Market, their promotion, and administration.
For those Friends of the Market that make a one-time donation, we will enter your name into a contest to win a specially curated gift basket.
For those Friends of the Market that make a recurring monthly donation, we will give you a Champaign Farmers Market t-shirt and enter your name into a contest to win tickets from Virginia Theater or a spa package from Rod Sickler Salon and Spa.
KID’S KITS AT THE MARKET
Starting on July 28, 2020, the Champaign Farmers Market will be offering Kid’s Kits for families to pick up at the Market and take home. Each kit will feature a fun activity that focuses on local food, healthy eating, or home gardening. The program is free to participate in.
The program is funded by the Nutrition Incentive Hub as part of a mini-grant to support our nutrition incentive program during COVID-19. The Land Connection and the Champaign Farmers Market are partnering with Champaign-Urbana Public Health District and Common Ground Food Co-op on the project. The project is also in conjunction with Common Ground’s “Cooking with Kid’s” program.
The Kid’s Kit on August 25 will provide everything you and your family need to make Cherry Tomato Basil Bruschetta! The kit will include all ingredients needed, the recipe, and a QR code (and link) to watch a tutorial video online!
