11th Annual Heirloom Tomato Festival

8/28/2010:

Tomorrow, Sunday, August 29th – from 1-5pm – at the Hoboken Historical Museum at 13th and Hudson!

A Taste of History!

“New Jersey based farmers Rich and Sue Sisti of Catalpa Ridge Farm will supply tastings of some of the tomato varieties they and neighboring New Jersey farmers grow. Favorites have included the tart “Aunt Ruby’s German Green,” the supremely flavorful “Brandywine Pink,” and the ever-popular “Radiator Charlie’s Mortgage Lifter.” New varieties are grown every year.

Catalpa Ridge Farm will also have packaged dips, pestos and salsas made from farm ingredients. They’ll also bring a selection of farm-fresh produce including corn, garlic, herbs, peppers, onions, eggplant, summer squash and more!”

Don’t forget the garlic in October!

Catalpa Ridge will return in October with even more garlic varieties for our Third Annual Heirloom Garlic Festival, so mark your calendar for Sunday, October 17, from 1 to 5 p.m., for free tastings of recipes made from “the stinking rose.”

For more information about either festival, call the Museum at 201-656-2240, or visit www.hobokenmuseum.org.

I dropped by last year and the tomatoes we bought were amazing. I grew some from last years seed’s this year and they are so sweet it’s like candy. Definitely get there early for the best selection.
