The Opawa Farmers’ Market will pay homage to the world famous ‘Tomato’ at our fourth annual ‘Tomato Fest’ on Sunday 8th March. Come and celebrate this most popular and versatile fruit with us. In addition to their abundant range of fresh local produce & artisan foods; stallholders will be making tasty tomato dishes especially for the day.

Christchurch’s Tastiest and Biggest Tomato Competition:
It’s been a great tomato growing season and we are looking forward to seeing a broad variety of tomatoes in this year’s competition. You can enter your tomatoes in either the heaviest or the tastiest category. Our guest judges will decide who has bragging rights of growing Christchurch’s biggest and best tasting tomatoes.

$2 per entry; proceeds going to The Southern Seed Exchange. If you enter the tastiest category all the judges will need to have a taste... so if your tomato is large bring just one, bring 2 if they're average size, and about 8 if they're small cherry tomatoes. Registration 9.15-10am, followed by judging.

The Opawa Farmers’ Market runs from 9am-12noon every Sunday, 275 Fifield Terrace. For more details see our facebook page.
