Say Hello to Iowa grown sweet corn! Our spring weather delayed the crop this year, but the wait is over. Penicks Sweet Corn Stand will be at The Market starting this Saturday. You’ll need some butter and seasonings to go along with your corn, and our vendors have you covered. We asked the Better Butter Bureau and Saltlickers for their suggestions. For the purist get some salted (or unsalted) butter and season with Crop Duster (a salt and pepper blend). Love spice? Go for the jalapeño lime butter and top with Rooster Shake or GGX. If you’re feeling adventurous, try seasoning your sweet corn with a new spice blend, Cha Cha Hot Pepper. Need a refresher on how to cook your corn? Here’s an article with some options.
Stop by and say hello to the Downtown Farmers’ Market sweet corn vendors mentioned above when you’re at The Market, Saturdays from 7 a.m. – Noon.
