Experience Killer Tomatoes at the Great Tomato Celebration in Morris
There's nothing like a Caprese salad. It's simple -- a slice of tomato, fresh mootz, and basil leaves, drizzled with olive oil and salt. One of those perfect culinary combos.
I love specialty food festivals. One of my favorites is the Greek Festival that happens in May at the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church in Waterbury.
Something I noticed years ago was that there were always beautiful tomato plants being sold inside the tent at the Greek Festival, and they disappeared quickly.
Morris, CT's White Flower Farm is a beautiful destination on Rt. 63. If you've ever tried gardening, I'm sure that you've already heard of this place. You may not have heard about their upcoming Great Tomato Celebration, though.
From Friday, May 19 to Sunday, May 21, White Flower Farm will roll out a vast selection of heirloom, beefsteak, and cherry tomatoes from their greenhouses, and set up and sell them on their property.
May is the ideal time to plant for the upcoming growing season, and White Flower Farm staff will be on hand all of those days to assist you with any questions that you may have about growing tomatoes, and sell you the products and seedlings that you may need.
