over at the ferry building farmer's market on saturdays is an outfit called happy girl kitchen (http://happygirlkitchen.com/). they got me hooked on heirloom tomato juice, or htj as i'm now calling it, but they don't think they'll have any more for the next couple of months. does anyone know anywhere else i can get it? have you had it anywhere (i.e., restaurants) i can try to call and hunt down? thanks!

    How 'bout making your own? Soon, when heirloom tomatoes are in season, it would be pretty easy to just dice them, puree them, then strain through a large mesh strainer. Or you can use a juicer, but unless you already own one, its a large expense just for tomato juice.

      There was a stand at the Temescal Farmers Market on Sunday that had fresh tomato juice, as well as very interesting pickled stuff in jars. Happy Boy, maybe? Next to the amazing pot pie stand. (Claremont DMV parking lot)

        Gattonelli at the Berkeley farmers market.

        When they run out, they can't make any more until tomatoes come back into season, but I think I saw them recently.
