The Tomato Festival is back! We’ll have a free tomato tasting, a People’s choice salsa contest and the Monster Tomato weigh-in AND Miss Andrea is back with Healthy Kids Bucks for the the first 50-yes 50!- Kids. $10 of Kids Bucks to buy fresh fruits and vegetables and eggs.
This is your chance to taste most of the tomatoes at the Market for free and vote for your favorite.
To enter the salsa contest, bring a quart of salsa to the Market by 10 am. The public tastes all the salsa and votes for their favorite. The contest closes at noon to allow time to tabulate the votes. Pre-covid tastings featured bowls of salsa, a couple of bowls of chips and everyone scooping and tasting. This year we’ll be using sample cups- I apologize in advance for the plastic but we couldn’t think of another way to do it. Maybe next year….
AND you can also enter the Monster Tomato Contest . Bring your biggest tomato to the Market by 11am. The weigh in happens at high noon. It doesn’t have to be ripe or pretty, just BIG.
We use a certified market scale to ensure accuracy.
