Corn and ideas plentiful at Farmers Market

SALISBURY — Wet growing conditions can be a problem for some vegetables, but not for sweet corn. The Salisbury Farmers Market is enjoying one of the best growing seasons ever for sweet corn, which is now in abundance. Cooler, wet weather experienced over the past few weeks has produced larger, full ears of sweet corn, according to Salisbury Farmers Market Manager Harry Agner.
Vivian Ray, who heads the Livingstone College hospitality management and culinary arts program, will be on site featuring local sweet corn and other local vegetables in a cooking and tasting demonstration of her favorite recipes. The featured recipes should be a real treat as Ray has more than 25 years of experience as a trained chef.
Agner also has this market update for local shoppers:
• Local honey is now at the Salisbury Farmers Market.
• Fresh local garlic is plentiful.
• Beautiful cut flowers produced locally are at their peak.
• Green beans have been popular and usually sell out early.
• Assorted beef, chicken and pork products.
• Local handmade cheese from Iredell County.
• Local field grown tomatoes have just arrived.
• Okra will also be available at the market.
• Handmade custom made bird houses are still a favorite.
• Goat milk soap for those with skin problems.
• Homemade dog treats are available.
• Home baked goods continue to be a market favorite.
It is important to shop early to get the best selection as some items may be limited. Local growers make a special effort to produce clean and safe produce for their shoppers.
The market is open 8 am to noon. The market has relocated at the corner of South Jackson and West Fisher streets in downtown Salisbury near Rowan Public Library earlier this spring. Go to www.salisburyfarmersmarket.com for more information about the market and its vendors.
