Farmers market roundup: July 19-25

We are in full tomato swing this week at area farmers markets. Pretty much every market detailed below will have the juicy fruit. We won’t publish the extended list here, but we will say that you’ll be able to find tomatoes of many colors and sizes.

And speaking of tomatoes, don’t forget that July 24 is the deadline for our annual Top Tomato recipe contest. So grab a basket of the summer staple, and get cooking.
