Annual Tomato Day at Carrboro Farmer's Market

Cut and pasted from an email sent to me:

Tomato Day is July 12th!

We hope you'll come celebrate with us!  Festivities are 8:30am to noon, and will include:
  • fresh samples of a selection of the over 70 varieties of tomatoes available at Market, alongside local bread and fresh cheeses
  • tomato-infused beer from Steel String Brewery
  • live music
  • face painting
  • tomato recipes
  • the Tomato Day Raffle: get free raffle tickets with your purchases at Market and enter to win one of over 50 prizes from over 35 local businesses!
One day is not enough to celebrate tomatoes!  We are making it a Tomato Week:
  • Come to the Wednesday Market (3pm-6pm) on July 9th for a tomato-themed sampling by Chef Marshall Smith of Glasshalfull.
  • Visit participating local businesses in the week before Tomato Day (July 7-11) to get free Tomato Day Raffle tickets with your purchase!  See our website for a list of participating businesses.
We hope to see you there!
