Pahl’s Market in Apple Valley is known for its plants, trees and shrubs. But what you may not know is that they also have vegetables. Lots of them. In fact, they have their own farm just minutes from their garden center.
Pahl’s farm is a busy spot this time of year because of sweet corn. Pahl’s grows eight varieties. Customers get it from the farm to their tables within a day or two. That’s why it tastes so good. In fact, crews work long days ensuring that the picker gets the corn fast and it’s boxed up and sent to stores. Pahl’s is family owned and operated. Jack Pahl says buying local makes it taste better. Twin Cities Live reporter Emily Engberg agrees. She got a taste right on site.
Pahl’s holds Kernel Days on Saturday August 19th. It’s the third annual. The event is from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. It includes a deal on produce and in store specials. You can also get a dozen sweet corn for just $1.
