|Tomato Tasting Contest 2016|
UCCE MASTER GARDENERS’ ANNUAL TOMATO TASTING CONTEST - If you are like most gardeners, tomatoes are number one in your heart. Most of us eagerly anticipate the first delicious fruit of the season. We are all looking for the perfect tomato. Saturday, August 26th is your chance to put your tomatoes to the ultimate test! The UCCE Master Gardeners of Amador County are sponsoring a tomato judging and tasting contest at the Sutter Creek Farmer’s Market located on the corner of Main Street and Gopher Flat Road.
Bring at least one (1) washed tomato of each variety (at least five cherry tomatoes) to the Sutter Creek Farmers Market between 8:30 -9:30 AM on Saturday, August 26th. The judges will begin their tasting at 10:00 and announce their favorites by 11:30 AM. Prizes will be given for the biggest, as well as best tasting red, non-red and cherry tomatoes.
Our fantastic judges this year include Steve Muni of Hometown radio, Darius Somary, consultant, and Scott Oneto, Amador County Farm Advisor and Farmer.
Join us for the public tasting and you will have the fun of tasting all kinds of tomatoes, from tiny grape-size tomatoes to giants the size of grapefruits, and a variety of colors, including yellow, orange, pink, tiger striped, and of course, ruby red. We are sure to have a tomato you’ve never tasted before and that may become your new favorite.
