Get new, corn-y recipes at Farmers Market

SALISBURY — Toi Degree, family and consumer science agent with Cooperative Extension Service, will be demonstrating how to make fresh corn fritters and corn, tomatoes and basil salad.
Both recipes feature corn, but in a totally different way. Both dishes will be prepared on site using fresh and local produce from market vendors.
Those interested in learning how to use these locally grown vegetables are encouraged to come to the market to see Degree, sample the variety of ways you can prepare corn and shop for the upcoming week. There will be recipes for each of the dishes and well as other recipes that you might find helpful. WIC vouchers are now being accepted at the Salisbury Farmers Market.
