Heirloom Tomatoes?

Does anyone know of a place to buy heirloom tomatoes? Not the plants, just the tomatoes

  1. They always have at least a few varieties at the Red Bank farmer's market Sunday mornings at the Galleria. I love the ones that look like mini watermelons.

    1. It would be helpful to know which area of NJ you are in, but that said...

      Delicious Orchards, in Colts Neck, usually has an excellent selection of heirlooms. I shop almost daily at the Wegmans, in Manalapan. They do carry them, but there are none there right now.

        Good point! I'm in Middlesex county. But I'll travel for a good selection/quality

          Whole earth in princeton has a nice selection. I just picked some up yesterday, the regular sized tomatoes and the cherry sized tomatoes. What a treat!

      2. I picked up several at Sickles Market in Little Silver yesterday. Had my first official mater sammich of the year!

        Sickles Market
        1 Harrison Avenue, Little Silver, NJ 07739

        1. I agree that you should be able to find them at pretty much any of the local Farmers' Markets around the State. Here's a list including some in both Middlesex and Monmouth Counties:

          In Southern Monmouth, the day to day selection at Matt's Farm Market in Belmar is the quite good.

          1. They are readily available at the Farmer's Markets in Morris County, so surely they must have them in Middlesex County.

            I got a gorgeous one from my CSA (first of the season), and boy was it yummy. Sort of green and stripey on the outside, deep purple color on the inside. Caprese salad with homemade mozzarella. To die for.
