    I'm in Urbana. If you're in Urbana and you come down to the farmers' market tomorrow, I can hook you up with the local Dems, who table there every Saturday. It's a much more laid-back situation, kinda preaching to the choir, mostly, but a good way to start if the cold-calling makes you nervous.

      except us Illinoisans. I can do that definitely!, though I honestly don't know where the farmer's market is (sadly, I should know after all).

        It's one of the best in IL - bring yr friends!

        [That's not bias. Well, it is, kind of, because I manage it, but it's really huge and fun and outside Chicago, it IS the biggest/best!)

        Do you know where Lincoln Square Village is in Urbana? The Market is in its parking lot - you can't miss it.

        Stop by the City tent (orange) at the NW entrance and ask for Lisa.

        :)

          ... I forgot to mention that the food co-op recently relocated to a storefront adjacent to the Market, and it's AWESOME.

          I live in Allen Hall and the Farmer's Market is pretty popular with them. Hence why I said sad I didn't know where. I think I can find it now. Anyway I hear good things about it. Any particular time between 7-noon or just whenever? Anyway will do. The name's Ryan here =)

            Stop by anytime between 7-noon - if I'm not in the City tent my co-worker can radio me. I like being out and about.

            The busiest time is between 8-11, but I always have a few minutes for a BHO supporter (and can point out who has the best nectarines, bacon, garlic, tomatoes, goat cheese, etc).

              I'll make sure to stop by sometime tomorrow morning, then! I probably won't show up until the later hours, as I'm one to go to sleep with the rise of the sun more than to wake up to it =P.

                Just so you know, I'm up at 4:30 AM to get that show on the road. VERY out of character, but I love the job so much that it doesn't matter!
