One of the best things about the warmer weather months here in WNY is the farmers market. All the fresh produce grown from the area… from apples to pears to grapes, peppers, corn and tomatoes…and so much more. It is also fun to visit with some of the friendly farmers that we have gotten to know over the years. You really appreciate the food so much more when you meet the people that take the time to grow it. And it tastes sooo good because it is fresh!
One of our favorite farmers has had these tomatoes this year and I finally decided to buy them. Not just to eat, but to take a photo of! They are so beautiful. To me they look like they were hand painted. Maybe it is just me, but I think they are so very pretty. They are called heirloom tomatoes. These tomatoes have a sweet taste to them and will be perfect in a salad! Or…just to look at! ;o)
