Olathe Sweet Corn

Looking for Olathe CO sweet corn. Usually available at Randalls or HEB for a short time each year.
Anyone spotted it yet?
That is just so .... unlocal of you! ;-)
Looks like the Olathe corn festival is Aug 2-3rd. Admission includes AYCE corn. Doesn't say if that includes butter and chile lime seasoning. ANyway - it appears that first week of August is Olathe Corn Season (which coincides with Hatch Chile Season)
i don't think it's exactly what you're looking for, BUT Two Happy Children Farm has been selling some really great corn at their farmer's market stands for the last few months. The first variety was really sweet (yellow and white kernels) and the last two weeks, they've been selling some version they're calling "Samurai." I found it to be heartier and creamier than usual corn. I've had a few ears with a live green worm munching just under the silk, as well as a few that were underdeveloped, but overall very satisfied with the freshness and sweetness.
$3 a basket, which can be 5-6 ears. Most chains are selling "local" corn for 3/$1
I am with Tuxedo Corn, the growers and shippers of "Olathe Sweet". This post popped up in my google alerts. So I figured I would post some info for you.
We generally being out harvest around July 20th. However this year, due to the warm weather we have had this year we are going to be 5-10 day earlier than normal.
