Farmers Markets - Local Corn and Tomatoes?

by Kim H » Fri Jul 14, 2017 6:44 pm

Hi! I would normally just head on over and see for myself, but I'm currently walking with a cane, and was wanting to know if local corn and tomatoes are in yet. Thinking about heading to Beargrass tomorrow, but that could be a lot of painful hobbling if it's too soon. If it is in, or when it comes in, who are your favorite farmers, particularly for sweet corn? I used to get a strain I believe was called cotton candy? Bi-color, and so so sweet, but not sure where to get it here. TIA!

Gallrein (Shelby County) has corn ready so I was told. They have always been at Bardstown Rd Deer Park and I assume they still are. We have bought corn from them for years and always good and pretty fresh.

Looks like corn is in at the St. Matthews/Beargrass market. I've been seeing tomatoes there for a few weeks, but now that it's mid-July there should be more local heirlooms.

What's at the Market this week?

Sweet corn is here! Blueberries are still here. Cucumbers and all varieties of squash are in. Heirloom tomatoes are in and beautiful green beans are ripe for the choosing. Stop by and see Harmony Fields for some delicious, tiny potatoes to cook with your beans. Lamb burgers, brats and cuts of all types are available from Stone Burr Lamb and others. Peaches are available by the basket so stop and see Dave Garey to take some home. Our musical guest is Burbonauts (Kevin Ahern). Our alternate vendors are New Beginnings, Blueberries of Daviess County, Steel City Pops, Weekly Juicery, Faul Family Riverside Farm, and Rondonia.
