Next Saturday is the Carrboro Farmers' Market annual Tomato Day celebration.
Starting at 8:30 a.m. Saturday, July 16, the Tomato Day event includes tomato samples, a display of more than 70 varieties, cooking tips and recipes, as well as live music, face painting for the children and a raffle.
To kick off their annual tomato celebration, the market is sponsoring two basic tomato canning classes from 3:30-5:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 13. The teacher is April McGreger, owner of Farmer's Daughter Brand, which sells pickles, chutneys, syrups and more at the market.
McGreger also will be teaching a basic cucumber pickling class for children starting at 5:30 p.m.
To sign up for the canning or pickling classes, send an email to email@example.com. Space is limited.
