***Due to COVID Central Illinois Produce is currently operating Monday through Friday at all of our locations. Many of our routes have reduced days of service. If you are not sure what days your location has available for delivery, especially as you reopen, please contact customer service for assistance. As demand has increased we are now offering pick ups in Urbana only on Saturday's from 7:00 AM- 11:00 AM. Email orders need to be placed by 4:00 PM the day before and call in orders are accepted up until 10:00 AM that day. We will continue to monitor the demand from our customers and we will continue to expand our days and routes as needed. Thank you. ***

We also offer an array of non-produce items from companies throughout the state of Illinois. More information is available under the Products List page.

Coming in the summer of 2020 Central Illinois Produce, in partnership with Creation Gardens and the What Chefs Want program, will begin offering the many new items you see on the online ordering sign in page. More details are to follow. If you aren't directed to the online ordering sign in page automatically, please clear your browser cache and click on the Online Ordering link to the left.
