Come with me as I take you to a new festival – new to me – not too far from where I live. It’s the Tomato Festival in Fairfield California. Fairfield is located 42 miles from both San Francisco and Sacramento. It is home to Anheuser Busch brewery and the Jelly Belly factory.
It was a hot August day with temps in the 90s but the breeze made the hot and dry temp bearable. We came on Saturday, which we found out was wrong timing as the bbq contest was happening the next day. Therefore we did not even have a taste of pulled pork sandwich.
Instead, we decided to sample different varieties of tomatoes. It was after all a tomato festival, so why not taste some tomatoes, right? We paid 2 bucks per head and entered a huge tent where volunteers like her give out samples. She also tells you what you are tasting, etc, etc.
Ready to see what we tasted? From here on there will be more photo and less text okay?
So, which one has the best cyber taste fellow tasters? Personally, the one I really love wasn’t pictured here. I had some brain freeze as I forgot to snap a photo of the small pink tomato variety called Juliette. Yes, we brought some tomatoes home. They are after all grown in this valley.
