Greenmarket Pick of the Week: Heirloom Tomatoes

Each year I wait anxiously until the heirloom tomatoes arrive at Fort Greene’s Greenmarket. They’re just stunning. Every shade of red, green, pink, purple, yellow…it’s like a rainbow of tomatoes. To be honest, this is one of the few items I buy consistently, and I don’t even know what farm they come from! I’m so in awe of the colors and the stand gets so crowded that I forget to ask. But trust me, this time of year, at the corner of Washington and Dekalb, you can’t miss them!

BONUS: They’re also selling bushels of canning tomatoes–round for $12 and plum for $15. In case you’re looking to can some tomatoes. I got one bushel this week to start, but I WILL be back.
