Mark your calendars for our Tomato Festival, August 10 at Asheville City Market from 8 am until 1 pm. What can you expect? Lots of fresh local tomatoes to purchase, of course + the chance to vote on your favorite variety, get tomato cooking tips from Chef William Dissen of the Market Place; and talk maters, growing maters, and mater recipes with farmers. What’s more, the first 200 attendees will receive a free Tomato Festival t-shirt! We’re also hosting a recipe contest leading up to the event. The winning recipe(s) will be printed in Asheville Scene, and winners will receive Asheville City Market Bucks. Deadline to submit is August 5; get all the details HERE.
