RECYCLING is available. Bring your aluminum cans and #1 and #2 plastics down to the market.

While we appreciate your enthusiasm, please know that market rules prohibit vendors from selling before 8:00 a.m. Feel free to catch a few extra minutes of sleep on your weekend morning!

Yield: 8 servings
Time: 25 min. prep, 25 min. grill


8 ears fresh corn in husks
4 tsp. finely shredded lime peel (peel from 2 to 3 limes)
2 tsp. kosher salt or sea salt
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 tsp. chili powder
Small Limes (optional)


1. Carefully peel back corn husks, but do not remove. Scrub ears with stiff brush to remove silks. Rinse ears. Pull husks back up around corn. Place in large pot; cover with water. Soak 2 to 4 hours; drain well. Peel back husks and pat corn dry with paper towels.

2. For lime salt, in small bowl stir together lime peel and salt. Brush some of the butter on corn. Sprinkle lightly with lime salt and chili powder. Fold husks back around ears. Tie husk tops with strips of corn husk or 100% cotton kitchen string.

3. For charcoal grill, grill corn on rack of uncovered grill directly over medium coals for 25 to 30 minutes or until tender, turning and rearranging occasionally. (For gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place corn on grill rack over heat. Cover; grill as above.)

4. To serve, remove ties from corn; peel back husks. Pass remaining butter, lime salt, chili powder, and limes for squeezing.

In addition to all the great vendors, the Vicksburg Farmers' Market depends on the help of volunteers each Saturday. If you're willing to sign up for a Saturday shift, please e-mail Volunteers typically sell soft drinks (funds support market advertising), answer customer questions, and assist vendors -- when needed -- to set up booths. As the summer wears on, we'll need more help. Please don't just shop the market. Volunteer to work on a market Saturday if you'd like to see this great summer event continue to grow!
