Champaign-Urbana Winter Farmers Market
Calling all of you last minute shoppers! Local, handcrafted holiday gifts are available for one more Saturday at the C-U Winter Farmers Market (before taking a well deserved holiday break until January 7th). We are definitely carefully planning our own last minute shopping to take advantage of the 50+ vendors (woah!) one last time until 2023!
Local businesses have you covered if the holiday rush leaves you with little time to craft, cook, or finish high quality, handmade gifts. At TLC, we are excited to share our Handmade Holiday Shopping List for this week, as well as share the many amazing local gift purchasing opportunities available at the CU Winter Farmers Market.
Invest in your community with holiday gift shopping this year. Supporting small, local businesses has a big impact in your local economy – creating opportunity for the uniquely local, small businesses that we all love to thrive.
Connecting those amazing local small businesses with our friends and family is a fun way to act as a “local explorer” and build up the small business diversity that makes where we live so amazing.
Pro-chef ingredients are waiting to shine in your holiday entertaining at the CU Winter Farmers Market.
