Amazing. Discussion among co-workers about the lack of great tasting tomatoes when one of the workers mentioned the Paoli Hardware store tomatoes. Amazing. We now cannot get enough! Best tasting tomatoes ever!
Shout out to Paoli Hardware tomatoes and produce!

    where do they come from? Local farm or backyard of the franchisee?

      I think the sign says somewhere in Lancaster County. Sometimes there are quart containers inside the store that make them not quite as expensive as the ones in the outside display.

        Lancaster. The corn on the cob is great too. Who'da thunk that a hardware store would sell great tomatoes?????

        I live in Paoli and have seen the tomatoes but never thought to buy them. They are a little pricey. But thanks to you will buy some later this week.

          REALLY good tomatoes are everywhere these days. Many of the farm stands here in Chester Co. have tomatoes that come in daily from Lancaster County. The best selection I've come across so far has been at Pete's Produce -- many varieties of heirlooms as well as others. It's almost like you can't go wrong buying fresh tomatoes, whether you buy them from a produce market, a roadside stand or yes, even a hardware store.
