This Saturday come to the Trout Lake Farmers Market and celebrate tomatoes! Vancouver Farmers Market will be showcasing the diversity of tomatoes grown by local farmers with over 100 varieties on hand. You will be able to find all sorts of shapes, colours, sizes, heirlooms, hybrids, organic, greenhouse and conventional.

Activities include a tomato display and tasting station with recipes,  tomato facts and information on seed saving. You can also check out the Fun With Food program which is a food literacy education program for kids and adults. Best of all, contests!  One will be “How Many Cherry Tomatoes” are in the jar contest and another will be the Speediest De-Seeder Contest. Prizes awarded for each.  Come out and test your knowledge of tomatoes and show off your de-seeding skills!  The Tomato Festival kicks off at 9:00 a.m. and runs to 2:00 p.m.
