An ear to the grill: Tony’s Produce now roasting corn


So we were at Tony’s Produce (35th/Barton) this morning to get some, well, produce, and we noticed something new – that big blue corn-roasting machine, and big signs touting ROASTED CORN. This all started just a few days ago:


That’s Joey, son of the stand’s namesake proprietor Tony, seasoning the corn with a special mix including Parmesan cheese. $2.50/ear, available noon-8 pm, and Tony (below right, with Joey) proclaims, a la the onetime TV chef Mr. Food, “It’s so GOOD!”

    We had some yesterday! What a fun treat. They suggested we get ours “loaded” (margarine, mayo, cheese, chili & lemon). It was very tasty, but my husband said he’d prefer just the cheese. We’ll definitely be back next weekend!

    OMG ! My daughter and I each had a piece of corn that was loaded. The pico de gallo gave it an extra zing. It was delicious. My daughter had to save the cob when she was done :). We will be back for more on Wednesday. Thanks Tony and Joey!

    This is absolutely without a doubt the best produce stand in Seattle. The corn roster is an added bonus. I had my first roasted corn tonight and it definitely will be added to my weekly shopping list for Tony’s Market. You must go for yourself and see the large variety of fruits and vegetables and how they are very neatly displayed. Tony and his son Joey are great! I am really interested to hear every ones feedback on this place. I am totally sold on it.

    ok i went for myself last night and it was actually very very good! the corn feel off the husk and was very sweet!!! i opted out on the mayo and seasoning salt and just had the butter! it was good! i might have to make the venture over the hill to have somemore!!!

    The roasted corn on the cob is fabulous with a good price too (eat your heart out Puyallup Fair)! My husband and I are always so happy when Tony’s opens up after his winter break. It is terrific to have good produce and to be able to purchase it from a local.
