In addition to the kiddie rides, the parade, t\Tomato fights and various activities, the Tomato Festival also has — you guessed it — tomatoes!

Vendors that can be found at the weekly farmers market selling fresh produce include Golomb’s Farm and Greenhouse, who will have vegetables and tomatoes will be plentiful at the time of the festival, even though the tomato season started late this year due to weather.

Golomb’s Farm has sold produce since the second year of the Tomato Festival when the event was on Kennedy Boulevard.

Another vendor known to be at the festival since 2000 is Brace’s Orchard which will sell dumplings, candy apples, donuts, cups of cider, peaches, apples, nectarines and plums.

Tim’s Chili and Salsa is a nine-year veteran of the festival and will sell salsa and chili.

These vendors will be located in the lower Tomato Festival Lot near the bandshell.
