You Say Tomato, I Say Tom’ah’to

Almost everyone agrees that fresh tomatoes taste so much better than those bought at the grocery store.
When growing tomatoes isn’t an option, the next best thing is a visit to your local farmers’ market, or more specifically, the Haliburton County Farmers’ Market!

Local tomatoes are good for you! Locally grown tomatoes are in most cases bred for taste & nutritional value, unlike supermarket varieties that are bred for travel. Typically, grocery store tomatoes travel 500-2000 km’s. This means durability becomes the priority and flavour as well as nutrient value end up taking a back seat.

Tomato Tip
Don’t put those tomatoes in the refrigerator. That will ruin their flavour!
Tomatoes will store at room temperature for about a week.

Create some sauces, purees and salsa with your tomatoes and put them in the freezer.
It’s such a great way to enjoy them all year round!

Check out our ‘Weekly Events‘ page for more about the Tomato, and for some more recipes, too!

So, whether you say ‘tomato’ or ‘tom(ah)to, the botanical name is Lycopersicon esculentum, and really, what’s in a name? We should just keep on experimenting and enjoying this popular, versatile food that just tastes so darned good no matter how you say it!

And, not only do we celebrate tomatoes on Friday, but we also welcome local artisan Karly Cox of Ironclad Metal Works. Her studio is located on Kushog Lake Road, not far from the market. We also have 2 jewelers and a soap/candle maker, so why not join us at the Haliburton County Farmers’ Market this Friday, August 17th where we celebrate the one and only tomato and our local artisans!
We hope to see you there!
