Cost of Fresh Sweet Corn at Farmers Markets

Paid $2 for 3 cobs last week. Tasted great. Must have been picked just the day before. Not like what you get in the stores. (This goes along with the Cost of Fresh Tomatoes at Farmers Markets Topic.)

But I remember not so long ago getting it for $1/doz. Okay, help yourself roadside stand and it was years and years ago.

  1. here in coastal sc it is 3 dollars for 6 or 5 dollars a dozen

    1. Here in Boston, it's typically 50 cents per ear. Cheaper out in more rural New England.

      1. I pay $2.75/half dozen here in Indiana. The grower usually throws in an extra ear.

        1. Our FM is a rip off as they charge $1 per cob in N. Alberta.

          1. You guys know the price of fuel, fertilizer and packing materials are throught the roof, right?
