The Lexington Farmers’ Market will be celebrating all things tomato at our annual Tomato Fest Tuesday, September 3 from 2:00 - 6:30 PM!
With the best of summer’s bounty, we will be highlighting delicious tomatoes from LFM farmers with recipes, tomato themed kids crafts & games, tomato corn-hole, and photo fun. Select Board members and LFM sponsors will join us for tastings, and farmers and vendors will have special tomato offerings on the day.
Calling all home gardeners, farmers, & backyard growers - we want YOU to join in our annual Tomato Contest. Bring your homegrown tomatoes and enter them in the following categories: Biggest - judged by weight, Littlest (must be ripe) - judged by diameter, Most Unusual - voted by market shoppers. Winners in each category will receive $10 in market gift certificates.
2-3 pm: drop off tomato entries at Market Manager's Tent
3-5 pm: voting by market shoppers
5-6 pm: winners announced and entries and prizes can be picked up.
