Check out this unearthed Champaign Farmers’ Market photo from 1910

With farmers’ market season in full swing, and with a few great options in C-U — Urbana’s Market at the Square and Champaign’s Farmers’ Market by Land Connection — things are pretty solid.

I noticed this post via Urbana Free Library, which posted this photo (above) from their archives:

Back of photograph reads: “Outdoor market — Champaign around 1910.” From the “Farmers market–Champaign” photograph envelope.

A little nostalgia for you. For me, I don’t know much about the history of farmers’ markets in this community, so it was interesting to see a photo from over 100 years ago. Stay tuned for Market Watch later this week.
