It really was a Kodak or Pintrest moment – the red tomatoes and yellow squash, green cucumbers, purple beets and blueberries.

Tomato, toemato- makes no difference in how you pronounce it because both mean you’re getting ready to eat something really good. It’s the perfect time of the year for tomato lovers. You can find tomatoes in all colors, sizes and varieties at the market now. The tomato truly is the king of summer produce and as such, deserves to be celebrated. So join us on July 26th at the market as we pay homage to the tomato with TomatoFest. Lots of good heirloom tomatoes to sample, kids’ activities and much more. Rumor has it that some “rotten tomatoes” may be flying around too! It’s all presented by our good friends at Amerigo, July 26th at the FFM.
