Is it because I was raised on the stuff? Are my big-city friends raving about the stuff just 'cause we're friends? You be the judge: Is Glasscock's sweet corn really good? Glasscock's stands are three:
--SE corner of Routes 52 and 59 behind Ali Baba's tavern in Shorewood
--SW corner of Plainfield Rd. (US 30) and Theodore (IL 7) in front of Dow Realty in Crest Hill
--The Glasscock farm on Laraway Rd. east of 53 on the Joliet-Elwood border
The stands also sell melon, zucchini, tomatoes, peppers..not all locally grown, though.
How fresh is Glasscock's sweet corn? A guy who works at the stands said during the recent cold snap that they didn't have corn for a couple of days because "the corn quit makin'" due to the cold.
