Locally Grown Farm Report

Two words: Sweet corn. Your Heinen’s is practically bursting with locally-grown sweet corn right now from a variety of farms in Ohio and Illinois. While we’ll always love the simplicity of tossing a few ears of corn on the grill and eating it right from the cob slathered in butter, salt and pepper, we’ve found a few other ways to enjoy the perennial summer favorite. How about trying it in Sweet Corn Soup with Chive Oil and Crab? Or whip up some Zucchini Corn Fritters. And of course, sweet corn is always great in summery salads like this Aztec Blend Salad with Corn, Chipotle and Queso Fresco.

For the full local experience, check out our upcoming Farmer’s Markets at select stores. Learn more here.

Thanks to relationships as carefully cultivated as our produce, we offer one of the largest selections of locally grown produce you’ll find. We’re always proud to say “We Know Our Sources” and this week’s locally grown farm report will show you why. We’ll be keeping you updated on what’s in-store from these and other farms as the season goes on!
