Community Farmers Market and Need More Acres CSA, located in Bowling Green, put on an amazing event a few weeks back called Heirloom Tomato Fest. It was fantastic, with lots of fun activities and delicious tomatoes to taste.
As a farmers market promotion, it was quite impressive and markets around the state should definitely take notice. Many vendors from the market were set up and giving away free food. Lots and lots of food! I don’t live near Bowling Green, but if I did I would definitely return to the market after enjoying so many of the samples. The entire event was free, which was impressive. I can’t imagine how much money the market and vendors invested into the evening.
Nathan and Michelle Howell of Need More Acres hosted this event at their home/farm, which I thought was very brave of them. They were very gracious hosts and it seemed like everyone there enjoyed themselves. Mark your calendar for next year!
