Oh yes, heirloom tomatoes! Taste to your heart’s content whether you’re a tomato zealot or would just like to improve the old palate a bit. The Market Square Farmer’s Market is having its annual tomato tasting this Saturday. Here’s the deal:

Saturday 10 a.m.–1 p.m.
Market Square Farmers’ Market
Market Square & Market

This Saturday we host our annual Tomato Tasting! MSFM farmers donate their favorite tomato varieties to be judged by our market patrons. Each tomato variety is placed in one of four categories – Cherry, Heirloom, Hybrid, and Paste/Plum, then tasted and voted on by you!

The event is completely free. To participate, just stop by the market between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. You’ll be able to try tomatoes that aren’t as common as your basic red globe varieties. Last year we had over 35 varieties to sample!
