Massachusetts Tomato Contest
August 18, 2014 @ 9:30 am - 1:00 pm
Tomatoes will be judged by a panel of experts on flavor, firmness/slicing quality, exterior color and shape. Always a lively and fun event, the day is designed to increase awareness of locally grown produce. Farmers who want to submit their tomatoes can bring them to the Boston Public Market Farmers’ Market between 9:30 am and 10:45 am on August 18th or drop their entries off with a corresponding registration form to one of the locations designated around the state. For the complete details, including contest criteria and a registration form, click here or at link at www.mass.gov/agr.
The contest is sponsored by the New England Vegetable and Berry Growers Association in cooperation with the Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources and Mass Farmers’ Markets, and is hosted by the Boston Public Market Association. This friendly contest is open to commercial tomato growers and is designed to increase consumer’s awareness of local agriculture.
