Lots of sweet corn will be at the Fayette County Farmers Market on Saturday morning (from about five vendors) and we will be grilling a sampling from the majority of them.
We encourage tasting the different varieties with no condiments to assess flavor and sweetness. Then, we will have a full assortment of condiments you may wish to add to your corn sample along with… lots of paper towels and water!
The Market is located in the municipal parking lot on the corner of South Main and E. East Street and as always SNAP EBT food benefit cards and credit/debit cards are accepted.
