Heirloom corn by the pound?

I want to make some polenta and I’m looking for some good corn.
Does anyone know any places that might sell good varieties either whole or ground?

Surfas used to sell Anson Mills polenta. Not sure if they still do, but you can get it online as well, http://ansonmills.com/products. Or you can get it from Zingerman’s, https://www.zingermans.com/Product.aspx?ProductID=P-POL.

Pretty sure they still do in the refrigerated section. Call a head and ask but I recall seeing it recently

Not sure if King’s Roost carries Corn but they mill heirloom grains in house and might be fun to check out

Anson Mills’ Trentino / Floriani red dent is perhaps the best polenta you can buy, but Community Grains has for a while been growing the same variety in California. Both sell a wide variety of products (which sometimes sell out until the next harvest) so best to call to ask what a retailer has in stock before going out of your way.

Good call. Anson Mills is my go-to for many grains and all things corn.
I also think their recipes are very good. Their shrimp and grits recipe, for example is pretty stunning.

Our local gal, Nan Kohler’s, Grist & Toll Polenta. Believe it’s sold at a variety of outlets (Knead Pasta, Lincoln) including the store in Pasadena and online.

It’s a staple on Rustic Canyon’s menu.
