Talkin’ Tomato!

This juice is made in…. Indiana!!?!??
Local tomatoes are at their best in late summer and are currently popping across town in gardens, farms and restaurants. The great thing about a good tomato is that it can practically stand alone. Toss some salt and pepper on it and work it into just about anything.

We aren’t known as “The Big Tomato” simply because the word can sorta be portmanteaued with Sacramento or because they grow so damn well here. We have been at the center of one of the nation’s largest tomato industries for decades.

If you are a fan of the love apple, as it used to be called, tonight’s discussion at the Sacramento Natural Foods Co-op is for you. Local historian William Burg is teaming up with local farmers to present a variety of views on the tomato, from its role in our local history and economy to new developments such as the square (!) tomato. Taste some delicious ones straight off the farm, too.
