Who's got native corn, NOW???

I got my latest Verrill Farm (Concord) newsletter last night. As of this morning, they're selling their first sweet yellow corn of the year at 55 cents per ear. Who else has native corn ?

      and, MacArthur Farm also had some at Copley on Friday. These are early varieties and while they do give us our first taste and are very good, they are not the luscious August corn that you want to eat every night.

          Oops, again. I sure wish we could edit for "link to a place".

    2. Didn't catch the farm name, but they were selling corn at $.50 per ear at the Davis Square farmer's market this past Windsday.

          Just went to Wilson Farms today. I did buy three ears, hope they are good. The asparagus, tomatoes and cantelope are awesome. also got some California peaches. Hope they are good. So hard to find good peaches in this area.

        2. Anyone know if Curcubit farm has corn yet?

            Not yet - their sign yesterday mentioned raspberries and tomatoes, though! I believe they're saying July 23rd for corn.

            1. re: chowcat

              I stopped there yesterday and they will definitely have corn by Monday the 23rd but possibly this weekend!

          2. Well I blew it by 24 hours Was at Verrill yesterday (see post) They had corn ( no sign that said "ours") at 55 cents an ear and they were refilling the bins with ears that were in green netting closed on all 4 sides so I assume shipped . Anyhow the ears were rather short but we grilled them on wood last night and they were mighty tasty ....and usually on the ride in when the corn is plentiful I see corn stalks in their field as tall as I am and yesterday they were paltry ...maybe a back field huh?
