If you are going to a farmer’s market or community festival in southern Illinois over the next few months, odds are you’ll probably run into Stan and Rita Pokorney – owners of Pokorney’s Kettle Korn, Gifts and Crafts.
The Pokorneys have been popping up their kettle corn at area festivals, fairs and farmers markets since 1998. They’re known for singing jingles to the crowd and passing out samples, to attract folks to their booth.
The Wayne County couple uses popcorn kernels from Earth Farms in Marion, Illinois. Pokorney’s Kettle Korn has been around long enough now that it has a very strong following of loyal customers, enough that Stan and Rita have supplied their kettle corn to folks for weddings and other family events, and will sell from their home if the need presents itself.
Aside from kettle corn, the Pokorneys also sell their handmade wood crafts, yard decorations and signs at their booth during each event. For more information on Pokorney’s Old Time Kettle Korn, Gifts and Crafts – you can find them on Facebook or give them a call at (618) 895-2824.
