Tomato Season in Virginia

Well, it’s that time of the year again in Virginia. The weather easily reaches three-digit numbers and the tomatoes are bursting off the vines. Lucky for us, we’ve got local farmers bringing them in by the truckload. So if you’re not growing your own by now, we’ve got you covered. Look for Certified Organic tomatoes from Amy’s Garden including sungolds, Jubilee’s, and Heirlooms. We’ve also got naturally grown cherry and heirlooms from Norman’s Garden, just 4 miles away, and Clark Blackwell’s delicious varieties.

Keep an eye on our Facebook and Twitter page for tomato updates all through the season.
