It looks like my husband and I might be moving to Urbana/Champaign this August. What's the market situation there? I know it's a small town and wondered if there's a decent amount of ethnic stores, particularly Mexican and Italian... Any good cheese shops? Places to get freshly sliced prosciutto? What about seafood and prime beef? What are the supermarkets like? I didn't see any Whole Foods or Trader Joes on GoogleMaps. How's the farmers market?
We'll be visiting in March and I've looked at the recommended restaurants- anything new?
