Who has the best tasting tomatoes at the JFX market. Unfornately not growing my own this year and looking for a great substitute. Not looking for greenhouse tomatoes. The name of the farm or approximate location of the stand would help. The tomatoes I have bought there in years past have just been o.k. Can't remember which stand I got them at.Thanks.

    Different varietals and different farmers tomatoes come into their own at different times. If you're truly looking for "the best", you should have a look at the offerings and discuss the tomatoes with the farmer (who presumably knows their produce best). There really is a wide selection and character of tomatoes available that can be dramatically different than the others. Talk to some of the farmers, sample a few different varietals and find the one that suits your tastes best.

      They usually put out samples for you to taste and then pick out which variety you want. There are literally 20 to 30 different heirloom varieties at most of the stands and they are each unique in color shape and flavor.happy hunting.
