At Rudy’s Happy Patch Market, fresh, ripe tomatoes continue to be the summertime produce of choice for market patrons.
Longtime customer Ronnie Greer, a certified real estate broker at Century 21 Real Estate, stopped by one recent morning, and paused to explain his volume purchase of tomatoes: “They may not be good for me, but I try to eat a tomato every day – sometimes more than one. I now buy them by the case.”
He is partial to tomatoes from the nearby Buchanan Farms. “Jim Buchanan has top tomatoes,” he noted. “I ask for them by name.”
The box of tomatoes he claimed had been delivered only minutes before from Buchanan Farms, and the delivery truck had just left the parking lot. That’s what we call farm to table freshness!
