It was tomato day at the farmer’s market today. They had a display set up with something like 70 different varieties of tomatoes, many of which were available for tasting. It you don’t like tomatoes, today would have been a lousy day to be at the market because I’m pretty sure everyone except the bread and cheese vendors was selling primarily tomatoes. I had to hunt and make my way around the market twice in order to get all the other fruits and veggies I ended up with. I did get at least 5 entries into the tomato day raffle which I think is for free stuff from local businesses. Even though there was a fine mist coming from the sky, since I didn’t get to the market until 8:30am it was completely packed out and I chose to NOT wait in the massive line to try out the ridiculous amount of tomatoes. I just bought some instead.
Here’s what I got:
Salad Mix,Head of lettuce, box of red tomatoes and FREE cucumber: $9.00

7 types of cherry tomateos: $3.00
