Tapia Bros - farm right down the street

Tapia Bros is a family farm right on Hayvenhurst and Burbank - it's really close to our house.  I used to come here as a kid when it was known as Maria's Corn Stand, and it's a treat that I can bring my kids here so easily.  Tapia Bros opens from around April to November, and it's a joy to walk down the street and buy fresh, locally grown strawberries, green beans, tomatoes, peanuts, peaches, white cherries, etc. etc. etc.  We went over there today and picked up a few things.  But that's nothing compared to the corn - which should be coming next week.  Tapia Bros is especially known for its corn, both the white and yellow kind.  It's so richly sweet you really understand why so many sweeteners are made from it.  I can't wait.  In the meantime, below is a photo of this Valley gem, and a little slideshow is after the jump.
