Slow Food Columbia and Sustainable Midlands are putting together a midsummer’s evening event that your family won’t want to miss! The 3rd Annual Palmetto Tasty Tomato Festival will be held on Sunday, July 15 from 5 to 9 p.m., with a VIP Supporter tomato potluck starting at 4 p.m. There will be a free heirloom tomato tasting, live music, high quality food and drink vendors, tomato bobbing, a homegrown tomato contest and old time festival fun at City Roots, an urban farm in Columbia.
Is your garden ripe with tomatoes? Enter the Homegrown Tomato Contest. Submissions will be collected from 4 to 6 p.m. on Wednesday, July 11 at the All-Local Farmers Market. Then visit the festival and help celebrate the tomato — the juicy, highly tasty, champion of the home garden in local backyards throughout South Carolina.
