Summer brings the bounty of bright red, yellow, purple and orange tomatoes to the North Park Thursday farmers' market and we've been dicing, stewing and snacking on them during these warm days all summer long. But as the heat starts to wear off and the days get shorter, let's not forget to enjoy these juicy fruits scattered on the farmers' tables before they're gone!
Pick the oddest shaped, biggest heirloom variety from J.R. Organics and dice them with chile peppers, onion and cilantro from African Sister's Farm for a bright salsa fresca, or add them to ripe avocados from Paradise Valley Ranch for guacamole.
Slice beefsteak tomatoes from Valdivia Farm and serve with your favorite cheeses from Springhill Cheese Company, fresh basil from Atkins Nursery and a touch of olive oil from The California Olive, or pick up R&L Farms citrus to try this cool and refreshing Grapefruit and Heirloom Tomato Salad. Buy multi-colored cherry tomatoes from Suzie's Farm to add a finishing touch on any salad or to snack on while you cook your main meal.
These summer treats will be piled high at the North Park Market, see you there from 3-7pm!
