Better late than never. Whew!! That was close. we almost did not have sweet corn due to the exceptionally rainy spring, but after a few delay, sweet corn is back!  Local sweet corn stands are once again emerging along city and rural roads throughout the Stateline and we couldn't be more thrilled!

So, we know you have your favorite, so please help us out...we want to know, who grows and sells the best sweet corn in Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin?

Sweet corn season typicaly runs through mid-September here in the Stateline, but due to the weather delays, it could run info early October. Right now we are at peak tasting sweet corn time.

Locally grown and sold sweet corn is the best, so we want to know who has this area’s best tasting sweet corn? Here are some of the sweet corn on the cob vendors you nominated back in 2018. We are looking for the best of 2019!
