How to Choose the Best Tomatoes
Always feel the tomatoes when shopping at your local farmers market and taste them. Farmers markets usually have tastings of their produce, grocery stores don't. Tomatoes should feel heavy for their size. Make sure they're not too soft either. Smell them! They should smell earthy and tomatoey. They should not be odorless! Avoid leaky tomatoes and ALWAYS shop for locally grown tomatoes. You just can't beat local.
