Corn on the cob

Did I manage to miss high corn season again? I haven't seen the big bins at Ralph's nor much at the Farmer's Market. Or is it upcoming? Nothing says summer like corn on the cob and fresh tomatoes. Does anyone have any suggestions for prime corn buying spots around LA, preferably on the weekends? thanks!

  1. No, you haven't missed corn season. My favorite corn and the most flavorful tomatoes and other seasonal produce items comes from the Lombardi Ranch stand in Saugus. They don't open until 'late summer' according to the sign out front of the stand!

    1. I've been getting excellent corn at the Pasadena Farmers Market for the last month or so. The only problem is that it never gets cheaper than 3 for $2.

      1. Corn and the best tomatoes are still coming...

        You haven't missed it.

        1. We've gotten corn at Tapia Bros. on Hayvenhurst and Burbank in Encino for the last month at least. I didn't see much at the Studio City farmers market last Sunday, nor a lot of tomatoes, and the heirlooms I did buy weren't too inspiring. Are tomatoes late this year or what?

          1. I thought the same thing about blueberries, then BAM! back in quart size for 3.99. Got some killer corn (on sale this week 2 for a buck at the Pavillions on Melrose and Vine.
