Central Valley fan hits the shelves this weekend and the Gibson Farm Market is ready for many.
Fresno State Sweet Maize will be sold on Monday, May 30, at 8:00 a.m., the 30th anniversary of the sale of 60 hectares of farmland in Fresno County.
Hundreds of customers are expected, the market has sold over 35,000 ears on the opening day over the years. Consumers in the market can buy three earrings in the market for $ 2. Or customers can buy pre-packaged corn for $ 8.50 outside the store.
“It’s an exciting way to start the winter every year for sweet corn,” said Fresno State Agriculture Manager Mark Salwaser. “It’s also a great way for our community to see a variety of fresh and quality produce from our students working on the farm.
The much-anticipated corn boom – like most recently – is on the rise. The price per ear increased by 32%. And always the warning: when supplies remain.
Their customers receive both yellow and white corn varieties, along with apricots, pumpkins, raisins, green beans, nectar, oranges, coconut and squash.
Seasonal produce, including peppers and tomatoes, is expected to go on sale in early June.
The market offers some of Fresno State’s wine selections as well as popular meat products as well as Vali’s favorite Fresno State ice cream. This year, Campus Cream Factory is introducing two new flavors – Coconut Pineapple and Cake Flour – for 20 flavors.
Both indoor and outdoor plants are available for sale from the garden’s orchards.
Gibson Farm Market extends working hours seven days a week starting Monday. The market is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
