The tomatoes are here! It seems like forever that we have been waiting for amazing heirlooms, multi-colored red, green, yellow and even purple varieties of the mouth-watering, juicy late summer fruit. What will you make with tomatoes this week? Something classic and long awaited or something new and exciting? The options are endless with this versatile crop: puréed cold or hot soups, quick pasta sauces, sliced into salads with fresh herbs and local cheeses, or even a mile-high sandwich. You can cut them into wedges and dip them in some homemade vegan hummus to accompany a glass of local wine or just shop around the market popping the cherry-size ones into your mouth as you browse. No matter your choices for serving tomatoes, you can find everything you need for a palate-pleasing spread at the Falmouth Farmers Market.
