On Friday, August 2nd, 2013 an activity that has turned in to a fan favorite returns to the Lake Bluff Farmers’ Market. In celebration of the Lake Bluff Market’s 20th anniversary, and following rave reviews from market-goers enjoying the Corn Roast in the past, the event will be fresh and – perhaps best of all – provided free of charge.
Fresh corn has long been a staple of barbeques and farm stands across the Midwest. For the August 2nd Corn Roast corn is being provided by regular Lake Bluff Farmers’ Market vendors Didier Farms, Red Barn Farm and Twin Gardens. The Lake Bluff Farmers’ Market Corn Roast is made possible by the Village of Lake Bluff and MC2, the Village’s electrical provider, who will serve as the event’s co-sponsors.
Thanks to the great support of the Lake Bluff Farmers’ Market’s regulars, and our dedicated vendor partners, our Corn Roast continues to grow and draw exciting crowds to the Village Green for professionally-roasted corn. Illinois is home to acres upon acres of cornfields and our state’s farmers produce some of the best corn in the Midwest, while feeding hundreds of thousands of people. With great corn readily available the Market team knew this event would draw the crowds out. We’re excited to keep the tradition alive in 2013!
Our annual party in the park will also feature live music from Terry Moran, helping create a festive atmosphere for all. We’re looking forward to seeing everyone back for some fresh and free samples on August 2.
