Chillwack Yellow Corn - not coming to Kelowna this year :(

Postby dle » Aug 16th, 2019, 11:08 am

In case anyone else who loves the yellow corn on the cob from Chilliwack (the green and yellow pop up barns that are usually at Rona) and has been waiting (drooling) patiently for them to arrive, apparently they ARE NOT COMING TO KELOWNA FOR 2019 :cry: I don't know why not, but I found the notice on one of their sites.

They are however in Vernon right now at the Rona store there if anyone is of a mind to go for a bit of a drive.

So, next question, does anyone know of a farm here in Kelowna that grows the nice yellow corn or where they are selling it? Days used to sell it a couple years ago but they are all peaches and cream or bi-colour now and that's all I can find in the stores as well.

I am not a fan at all of the bi-colour, or peaches and cream - I find it wimpy and tasteless so I am cornless unless Sparkes barns show up. I like me a nice bright yellow cob or two smothered in butter and pepper.

While I prefer peaches 'n cream I won't turn up my nose at yellow if that's what the store has. Picked up 4 nice cobs of yellow at Walmart a week or so ago.

This was discussed earlier and they claimed not to be able to hire enough people for working in the shacks.

Days is the best corn but WalMart corn can be good too and way cheaper.

We got some there for .27 ea and it was great.

Instant Pot for 4 min and it's perfect.

We cook it in the husk too but in the nuker - 4 mins per cob ( so 8 mins for 2 cobs at a time and so on) and yum. CAUTION very hot so use oven mitties to take them out and cut off an inch from the bottom, grab the silks and shake and out pops a perfect hot cob.

FreshCo had local corn for a nickel a cob the other week, and man, was it good :up:

since yellow corn is the only one I like I pay the piper! I can never find anything but bi-colour / peaches & cream locally anymore. I did find some yellow at Superstore last week but that was the first time this year. Had to get my yellow corn fix from the Chilliwack pop up in Vernon....bought enough to freeze 1/2 doz as well.
