As the sun just begins to show its face over the horizon, things are already heating up at our booth at the Farmers’ Market. It’s the first Saturday in June, and we have the first local tomatoes arrayed on our table. Their bright red glow can be seen from either end of the market, and customers are lining up. It’ll be a fast-paced hour or two until we sell out. Some customers will leave with fewer pounds than they wanted – vowing to arrive earlier next week. Nothing (except maybe sweet corn) packs in the crowds like luscious, vine-ripe tomatoes.
