The 5th annual Palmetto Tasty Tomato Festival will be held in Columbia, SC on Saturday, July 19, 2014.
The festival will highlight locally grown food –the people who grow it, the restaurants who place it on their menus, the markets that sell it, and the people who eat it.
Continuing in the tradition of old-time festival fun, programming for this year’s Tasty Tomato Festival includes a free heirloom tomato tasting, live music, local food + drink vendors, tomato bobbing, and the highly anticipated Tasty Tomato Contest.
The Midlands Grown Restaurant Week will be held in the days leading up to the festival, a weeklong collaboration with restaurants who will offer special local selections on their menus. Many of our local restaurants will also be offering food at the festival.
Sustainable Midlands, a champion of the region’s sustainable food efforts and festival founder, is producing this celebration of the tomato season. The festival will be held at City Roots Urban Farm.
