Best Place to Score
an Heirloom Tomato

North Union Farmers' Markets

Needless to say, old-fashioned toms are best found in old-fashioned places -- like weekly farmers' markets, where locally grown produce arrives at peak freshness. While new venues seem to pop up every summer, our favorites are still the reliably well-organized, well-stocked, and well-attended ones sponsored by the North Union Farmers' Market. Here, heirloom veggies mingle with homemade jams, fresh-baked breads, and even the occasional tie-dyed T-shirt. It's a shopping experience that reminds us that every day is Earth Day.
