Big and beautiful, small and sweet, striped and juicy…red, pink, yellow, black, orange, green …round, plum, cherry, pear, heart-shaped… salad, sauce, paste, heirloom, hybrid….there’s a world of difference in market tomatoes. One things the same though they are all locally-grown… and delicious. Taste them this Saturday and vote for your favorite! Store tomatoes on the counter, not in the fridge. They will keep for several days this way and the not-so-ripe ones will continue to ripen. High in Vitamin A and C..and when cooked, loaded with the antioxidant Lycopene! Want to try Salsa?
