Come to market today from 4pm to 7pm prepared to taste some of the amazing varieties of tomatoes our farmers have to offer. Kids will taste and rate their favorite varieties. This is a great way to make trying new foods interactive and fun!
Plus we will have a fun kids craft for the them to complete and take home after the taste off.

Kids are asked to check in at the Kid’s Tent when arriving at market to collect (or fill out a new) passport. They will then be given instructions for the activity.
