Looking for a way to reach thousands of Champaign-Urbana residents and show your support for local farmers and local food? We invite you to become a sponsor of the Champaign Farmers Market and Champaign-Urbana Winter Farmers Market!
Here in Champaign-Urbana, The Land Connection (TLC) operates two farmers markets. These markets contribute to a more resilient local food economy by creating business opportunities for farmers and entrepreneurs, providing food access to underserved populations, and educating people about nutrition and cooking. The Champaign Farmers Market, in Downtown Champaign, is looking forward to its 8th year of operation and the CU Winter Farmers Market is currently in its 2nd year at Lincoln Square Mall in Urbana.
Each season at our mid-week Champaign Farmers Market, we welcome over 18,000 customers to shop for flowers, bread, meat, honey, jams, hot sauce, produce, and more. This market offers a central location for shoppers to grab their grocery staples mid-week in the heart of downtown Champaign. The CU Winter Farmers Market at Lincoln Square Mall serves over 12,000 customers during the Holiday Markets in November and December, with over 40 vendors selling everything from fresh produce, meat, cheese, and bread, to pottery, fine art, jewelry, and quilts. From January through April, our Saturday market offers one of the few places to purchase fresh, locally grown and produced food during the winter months. Our markets remain committed to providing safe, community-oriented spaces for the diversity of needs in our vibrant cities.
