Tomato Festival Kicks off August at the Market
The 5th annual Tomato festival on August 5th is a great way to start the month of August at the Market. Enter the Salsa contest and win $25! No fruit salsas allowed this year, it’s the tomato festival after all! Bring a quart of salsa to the Market by 10 am. Tasting begins at 10:30 am. The people’s choice wins the contest. Results will be announced at noon. You can also enter the Monster Tomato weigh-in. Bring your tomato by 11. Weighing begins after the salsa winner is announced. Wagon Wheel Farm set the bar pretty high last year with their enormous 2.98 pound tomato. Don’t let that discourage you, tomatoes seem to running smaller this year and the winner receives a $25 gift certificate to the Market. Chef Jen will be cooking fresh and delicious food and it’s your opportunity to try all the fabulous tomatoes being sold at the Market in the free tomato tasting. It’s always fun to see and taste all the different varieties.
