Mexican Street Corn

This week the Festive Foodies bloggers are going to share with you recipes using ingredients found at the Farmer's Market. You will have so many recipes to try and all of them are taste-tested by the bloggers who share them. You can have 100% confidence in our recipes!

I adore the Farmers Markets wherever we have traveled or lived. My first true Farmers Market that I experienced was in California and it was so amazing that we have always tried to go to a Farmers Market anywhere we vacation. For us, they are a true experience of where we happen to be.

We have supported Farmers Markets in every place we have lived in.  Our favorite has been the Soulard Farmers Market in St. Louis. It is busy, has lots of choices, great prices, food stands and more.

We adore our little Farmer's Market here in New Town.  GlenMark Farm is locally owned and they have a darling little shop where we can stop by at any time and pick up eggs and whatever has been freshly picked that day.
