TOMATO CRISIS CONTINUES at ARTfarm; Wednesday 3-5:30pm

Purple ball cherry tomatoes mix with orange sungold tomatoes at ARTfarm. Great eaten out of hand, or added to a salad for a burst of color and sweetness. All sweet, sunripened and juicy!

ARTfarm's cherry tomatoes are left to ripen on the vine and then picked at the peak of sweetness. Our black plum tomatoes are rich in flavor and are great in sauces, salsas, and just as a snack.

Our plums and smaller slicers are ideal tomatoes for cooking, canning, or eating fresh on a sandwich or sliced as a tomato salad.

Heirloom tomatoes are the most delicate and densely flavored of the tomatoes we grow at ARTfarm. They range in color from red to orange to purple and green shouldered. They vary in shape and size - some of the larger varieties can weigh over a pound for each fruit!

Some of you may have read in the St. Croix Avis about the tomato crisis at ARTfarm. We have more tomatoes than we can eat. Please, come and buy some of our delicious field and vine-ripened organically grown tomatoes. They come in all different sizes, shapes and colors, and each of the varieties has its own special flavor and nutrient mix, so why not try a few of everything and see what you like best?

If you refrain from eating your ARTfarm tomatoes right in the parking lot, we have salad mixes to go with your tomatoes, or you can pick up some herbs and make a tomato salad, salsa or tomato sauce, or cook them up in a creole to go over rice or fish!

For Wednesday we’ll have: heirloom tomatoes, slicer tomatoes, plum tomatoes, three kinds of cherry tomatoes, spicy salad mix, sweet salad mix, microgreens, arugula, cucumbers, sweet bell peppers, papayas, basils (lemon, thai, italian and holy), cilantro, dill, parsley, sage, lemongrass, garlic chives, scallions, chili peppers, broccoli greens, kale, escarole. All healthy for you and full of micronutrients and minerals from the soil!

  1. We plan on coming out Saturday will you still have tomatoes and basil? We are here until April and would love to have fresh veggies every week. Thanks

  2. Hi Ruth! Sorry to have missed your comment last week. We will have tomatoes and basil at least through March, and right now is the heaviest harvest time for the tomatoes. So yes, you will have fresh veggies from us through April! Thank you.
