13th Annual Heirloom Tomato Festival

Hoboken Museum hosts annual Heirloom Tomato Festival

On Sunday, August 26th – 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 14, from 1pm to 5pm, 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 planted 4 heirloom tomato plants this june and now they are getting ripe. These tomato’s are great eating on a sandwich of fresh mutz and a couple of thick slices of todays pickings a pinch of salt and a ice cold beer. I have a monster that must be the size of a softball and is about 2/3 days away from picking. I plan to slice it and sprinkle it with olive oil, salt and freshly picked basil, i’ll think of you foodies while I eat it.
