The Weekly Dirt
Heirloom Tomato
Highlights, Vendors, Events and more. Downtown and Sunset Valley - Sat, Feb. 8
Downtown: Eat heart healthy this February with fresh tomatoes from B5 Farms. Tomatoes are a great source of lycopene, an antioxidant that is great for your arteries. Try the flavor packed Momotaro pink tomatoes for a fresh salad or light sauce. Remember to get your knives sharpened at Knife Party to better slice into these juicy fruits.

Sunset Valley: Fresh strawberries are in season! Stop by Flintrock Hill Farm to pick up a pint of these delicious berries just in time for Valentine’s Day. Also head to the Austin Montessori School booth for fresh carrots, radishes, green garlic, chicken and duck eggs, and dried herb seasonings including Love and Veggies - perfect for sprinkling on popcorn as you curl up to a movie with your boo.
