Bastille Day Picnic
Bastille Day is "Pique Nique" time in France, and we never miss the opportunity for a picnic. This historic day marks the storming of the Bastille prison in 1789 and the first major event of the French Revolution. We like to forego the politics and to straight to the menu.
So grab your wicker basket, red checked blanket, and any red, white and blue decorations left over from the 4th, and drop by the store on your way to a grassy field full of daisies.

| Brentwood Corn and Festival|
Our local Brentwood corn is here. Sweet, firm, and delicious. Perfect for grilling, boiling, or steaming. It's a tasty addition to your summer picnics, barbecues and parties.
Brentwood is famous for its corn. The rich Brentwood agricultural soil and temperate climate of the Delta is ideally suited for growing corn. The local farmers take full advantage of these perfect growing conditions, and hand pick their corn each day. That's important because corn can lose over 25% of its sweetness shortly after picking.
