Downtown Champaign Farmer’s Market – 5/17
The Champaign Farmers Market takes place every Tuesday from 3:00 – 6:00 p.m. in the parking lot at Neil & Washington in downtown Champaign. The Market operates from May 17 – October 25. This year vendors will be offering meat, poultry, eggs, vegetables, fruit, microgreens, baked goods, bread, desserts, flowers, and herbal products, dog treats, food trucks, and more!
These last two years of the pandemic revealed the complexity of our national food distribution system. Food supply gaps manifested in empty shelves at grocery stores and motivated folks to look for food solutions closer to home. Farmers markets became a part of the solution, with their ability to provide products to meet demand for locally grown, raised, and produced foods. The Champaign Farmers Market is now in its 8th season and is a reliable source in Downtown Champaign for fresh, nutritious, locally grown food. We take pride in our market Vendors, knowing they offer their best to the community every Tuesday!
