Sweet Corn from Sterino Farms

Why does fresh summer corn from our markets make people close their eyes and go “mmmmm”? One reason: because Jake Sterino grows the best corn in Washington, just for us.

Jake’s family has been farming here in western Washington for three generations. Between the rich Puyallup Valley soil, cool Pacific breezes, and the partnership we’ve built with Jake over 25-plus years, Sterino’s hand-picked corn is sweeter than sunshine after a week of rain.

The deep yellow super-tender kernels aren’t too big or too small. Juicy, never starchy. And so good, we can’t really bring ourselves to offer you anything else this time of year. Our produce specialist Jim Foley puts it this way: “Sometimes the better decision would be just not to have corn.”
