Fifth Annual Bayou City Farmers’ Market Tomato Fest Scheduled For June 6

May 11, 2009

Urban Harvest’s Bayou City Farmers Market will hold its fifth annual Tomato Fest from 8 a.m.-noon June 6 at 3000 Richmond at Eastside, between Kirby and Buffalo Speedway, in the back parking lot.


Tomato Fest celebrates the height of the tomato season in southeast Texas.  Vendors will have a variety of tomatoes, including Sweet Million, Sweet Chelsea, Juliette, Carmelo, Champion, Yellow Pear, Sungold, Green Zebra, Brandy Wine and more.  A panel of judges will taste test and vote for the best tomato at the market. 


For this year’s event, Urban Harvest is partnering with the Texas Department of Agriculture on a Tomato Cook-Off, pairing Houston celebrity chefs with notable local foodies to create unique tomato-inspired dishes for market shoppers.   


Urban Harvest’s own tomato doctor will be on-hand to answer tomato-growing questions.
