Description

Stillman's Farm Tomato Contest

Presented by The Trustees and Stillman's Farm

Stillman's Farm handed out 100 tomato plants this spring and now they are welcoming everyone back for their 2nd annual tomato contest in The KITCHEN at the Boston Public Market. Join us for this FREE event!

There will be many categories and fun prizes, and plenty of tomatoes for sampling! There will be useful or tasty prizes for the winners (ie: food you want to eat, gift cards for BPM, not a plastic trophy).

The contest is open to all amateur growers, with separate categories for juniors and adults - even if you didn't get your tomato plant from us.

Timeline:

  • 10:00 am to 11:45 am - Drop of your tomatoes to enter the contest
  • 12:00 noon - Judging and tasting begins
  • 1:00 pm - Prizes are handed out and the event ends

What to bring:

Bring one or more tomatoes. If you have cherry tomatoes, please try to bring 3-5. Did you participate in Stillman's May tomato plant giveaway but do not have a tomato to enter? Bring a picture of your plant! Every participant in our tomato plant giveaway will win a prize just for showing up! Ideally, every entry will be tasted. Don’t have one ready for eating? Bring it anyway.

Disclaimer: Stillman's will be making up the rules as they go, especially for juniors.

Categories Junior and Adult:

  • Tastiest (may be separated by variety)
  • Tastiest Cherry Tomato (5 if you have them)
  • Heaviest
  • Ugliest
  • Most Perfect

Entries may be dropped off August 20th between 10:00 am and 11:45am. Judging will take place at Noon. Join us for snacks and tomato sampling from Noon to 1pm.

Tickets are FREE and open to everyone and all ages!
