Best farmers market corn?

Doing a little grilled corn fest for the crowd on Friday. I usually have my go-to corn guy but he wasn't at my market today, so I'm looking for a recommendation at the main market for Friday morning. Anyone especially consistently good?

    What main market did you have in mind? The following farmers' markets have hours on Fridays:

    Afternoon: St. Thomas More parish in St. Paul

    Morning: White Bear Lake

      There is a market on Lexington in St. Paul Friday afternoon. I always look for white corn, as it is more sweet and more tender than yellow or bicolor.

        That's the one at St. Thomas More parish, mentioned above.

            Oh, no reason to Oops -- have to admit that I am never home from work in time to make it over to that one, so I can't add any good information about what's available from the vendors.
