What would summer be without corn on the cob? Even off the cob, fresh, California-grown corn is some of the sweetest you’ll taste all season. Drop by Sonoma Market for delicious corn grown fresh by California farms like G&S Farms.
Officially Ghiggeri & Stonebarger Farms, G&S Farms has been growing deliciously sweet corn in Brentwood, California, since the 1940s. Now led by third-generation family farmers, they continue to grow first-class, non-GMO corn locally and pick it at the peak of ripeness to maintain the best freshness and flavor. Look for it in our stores from June through September!
Along with tasting great, corn is also well worth the eating health-wise! According to Dr. Liz, corn supplies folate (a B vitamin crucial for a healthy pregnancy and protecting your heart and circulation), beta-cryptoxanthin (an orange-red carotenoid), energizing carbohydrates and a wealth of other nutrients.
