Farmer’s Market Season in The Verde
One of my favorite times of year is summer. With summer comes the adventure of farmers market season. Did you know there are several farmers markets in the Verde Valley every week during the long days of summer?
My personal favorite is the Old Town Music and the Market. Each Thursday night starting at 5;00 in evenings in May, June and September. Thursdays in Old Town Cottonwood is a great place to be! It’s right there behind the city buildings on Main Street. My friends who live in Old Town say that they enjoy Thursday nights because they can hear the music from front porch but walking over is quite easy too! The best part though comes when you’re able to walk away with some fabulous finds and some great goodies.
Sweet Corn on my Brain
Back in 2017, I posted a blog about squash blossoms, and how eating them batter dipped and fried was delicious. But in that same blog I also talked about sweet corn. Organic, fresh picked summer corn is almost to die for. I love harvest season and the corn score I can return home with, ready for consumption!
I thought this week I would go ahead reiterate how awesome summertime sweetcorn is and give you a few ideas of how to enjoy this tasty treat.
