Get your appetite ready and plan to taste all things tomato on Saturday, July 24, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Shockoe Tomato Festival. Taking place at Richmond’s 17th Street Farmers’ Market, this event celebrates that special fruit in all its glory. With all its large number of farmers, Virginia happens to be a large producer of fresh, juicy tomatoes. There’ll be lots of growers at this festival showing off various varieties from heirloom tomatoes to the famous north-Richmond-grown Hanover tomatoes. Plus, there’ll be delicious tomato treats for savoring, such as tomato pie, fried green tomatoes, BLTs and more. This intimate festival is a delicious way to spend the afternoon.
