Popcorn Sale & Celebration
January 2019

The word “corn” in Old English meant “grain” or more specifically the most prominent grain grown in a region. Maize being the most common grain in early America, the word “corn” was aptly applied. This time-honored treat can be sweet or savory, caramelized, buttered or plain or tossed with nuts and chocolate.  The Elegant Farmer offers you free samples of various popcorn throughout January and special pricing when buying 2 get 3rd free in the market and online!
