Tip Top Produce

Very sad. Today at the Berkeley Farmers Market the folks at Tip Top produce were giving away (asking for donations) their lovely produce because the young owner died and the farm with her. Those cherry tomatoes were the best I've ever had. And the san marzano tomatoes they sold made many beautiful sauces here this summer.

So sad.

    It is very sad that Laurel (the farmer) has passed. The good news is that the other gals and her brother have every intent of keeping the farm going, which is a wonderful way to honer her as well keep us in great produce (especially the french plums they grow).

      Good to know that someone will be carrying on with the farm. The woman at the Tuesday market said that the farm ended when Laurel did.
