Fresh is the Word

Shopping at Urbana's Market at the Square means you, the patron and customer, recieve the freshest of the fresh in terms of produce, meats, cheeses and more.  Fresh, local food not only is beneficial to your health, but it helps the local economy and communities.

In terms of fresh, this weekend has got it going on.  Here is why:

Fresh produce:  Plan to find some amazingly fresh greens, beans, squash, pumpkins, apples, sweetcorn, eggplant, herbs and more.

Fresh air:  The Market is outdoors with plenty of room to wander down FIVE rows of vendor spaces.  If you're in the mood for baked goods - we've got your covered.  If it's your mother's birthday and you have yet to buy her a present - our talented, local artists have the PERFECT gift.  If you're new to the area and want to learn more about community organizations and local non-profits - visit ROW 5!

Fresh beats:  The Market is going to be HOPPING this weekend with fresh beats by The Turinos and Art at the Market.
  • The Turinos, 9:30 AM – 11:30 AM
  • Son and father duo Matt and Tom Turino have been performing old-time, Cajun, and country blues music as well as their original tunes and songs on fiddle, banjo, guitar, and button accordions throughout the Midwest and Upper South over the last ten years. Currently they also play with the Cornstalkers Cajun Band, the U-Four String Band; Matt performs with the Mean Lids; and Tom performs Andean Music with the Hathaways. They have been regulars at the Urbana Farmer's Market since Matt was ten. Listen to their music online on their Myspace.
  • Design Eco-Friendly Cloth Napkins with Traci Pines, 8:00 AM - 12:00 PMMake the switch: Ditch your paper napkins for breakfast, lunch and dinner! Go green and cut down on household expenses by cutting your use of paper napkins. Use stamps, markers, and fabric paints to make your very own custom designed and eco-friendly cloth napkins to use at your next family meal and even in your school lunch!!
And if you're still not convinced that the Market is where fresh is at...then let these photos convince you:
