Taste of Tomato

A Scrumptious, Home-Grown Community Event!


Saturday, September 7, 10:00 am to 1:00 pm
Growing Gardens Barn, 1630 Hawthorn Ave, Boulder 80304

Are your tomatoes healthy, delicious and productive? Bring some samples of your successes to the 9th Annual TASTE of TOMATO!

The local gardening community (and the general community, too) wants to know which varieties worked for you and wants to taste them to see if your varieties should be growing in their gardens next year! Which ones kept producing through the intense heat? Did you experiment with some new and wonderful types? If you’re among the lucky ones whose tomatoes are producing well, please bring some nice ripe ones to share (see Entry Instructions below), and you’ll get in free!

And if you don’t have any to share, come anyway! For a nominal entry fee of $5, you’ll make lots of delicious new taste discoveries, learn how to save seeds from your best tomatoes, and have an excellent chance of winning one of the valuable door-prizes we give away every half hour!

We’ve always had between 65 and 100 different varieties to taste, including heirlooms, hybrids, cherry tomatoes, honkin’ big ‘beefsteaks’, slicers, and paste types – amazing!  And they’re labeled, so you know what they are.

We love our fabulous new location – the new BARN at GROWING GARDENS! This year, we are delighted that Growing Gardens and Slow Food Boulder County have joined us to present the Taste of Tomato!

The Taste of Tomato event will include: 

  • Two demonstrations of Tomato Seed-saving procedures at 10:30 and 12 noon.

  • A lot of fun, and educational, too! Master Gardeners and Harlequin’s Gardens staff will be on hand to answer your tomato questions.

  • Valuable DOOR PRIZES will be awarded every half hour!

  • Children are welcome with adult supervision. Please do not bring dogs.

So, Y’all come! See you soon!
