The ever popular Fincel's Sweet Corn stands once again open for business

Posted: Updated:
EAST DUBUQUE, Ill. (KWWL) -

One of the surest signs of summer is back in the tri-states.

Fincel's Sweet Corn is once again selling their product in both Dubuque and East Dubuque.

Sales officially kicked off Wednesday morning, and business so far has been great.

"Business has been wonderful," said Sarah Fincel. We've had a good amount of sweet corn, a larger amount than we normally do for our early corn. Normally we'll have 3 and a half sections, this year we had seven, so we've had corn longer in the day. A lot of people we worried that it was going to sell out very early, and we've been able to satisfy a lot of people's dinner plans tonight."

By early afternoon Wednesday, their Dubuque location had sold out and their East Dubuque location was down to the last of it's stock for the day.

So what makes it such a great product?

Part of the answer comes from the freshness: they hand pick the corn they sell each day, and never sell their corn two-days old. Their farm is just a couple of miles down the road from East Dubuque, so no long truck rides to bring it in, either.

But Fincel says that's not all.

"We just, we put a lot of our heart and our family and our lives, blood, sweat and tears into it, and will continue to do so," she said.

Fincel's has been family owned for 135 years now, and they have people from all over the tri-states flocking to buy their sweet corn.

 "Oh, it's so good. We try to go to other stores, and try to see if they're any good, and they just never beat Fincel's corn," said Kaylie Feist of Platteville.

Fincel says they try to sell out every day, but when they don't, they donate the rest to local food banks.

They sell every day of the week in a couple of different spots. For a full listing of their locations and times, visit http://www.fincelssweetcorn.com/locations.html.
