The Market this week: Corn, Corn, Corn

It’s mid-August, the lazy days of summer, and the perfect time to enjoy the farmer’s market! Come out and join us this Thursday at East Lynn Park from 3pm to 7pm – the wading pool will be open and Oaks ‘N Acorns will be hosting a kids activity at 4:30pm. It’s a great time to bring the kids, pick a snack up at the market, and hang out in the park for the afternoon, or maybe even make it a picnic dinner so you don’t have to worry about dishes.


Every week the farmers bring more produce to choose from and this week the highlight is corn and tomatoes! We always get excited when corn is in season, it just doesn’t get any better than corn on the cob fresh off the grill and dripping with butter, but if you want to make something new that incorporates some of the beautiful farm-fresh tomatoes and potatoes along with the corn give we recommend this delicious chicken and corn summer chowder. See you at the market!
