The big, the red, and the ugly

FRAMINGHAM

There are only two weeks left to love and nurture your entry into the “Ugliest Tomato Contest,” to be held Aug. 24 at the Framingham Farmers’ Market.

Entries must come from mere gardening mortals, not farmers, according to Elizabeth Aurilio, market manager, and the prize will be a large basket of farmers’ market goodies.

Entries must be in before 2 p.m., when voting by market visitors begins. Over three hours the public will judge the "homeliest homegrown tomato" (rotten fruit not eligible).

The Framingham Farmers’ Market runs Thursdays from 12:30 to 5:30 at the Village Green on Edgell Road. Click here for a listing of other farmers' markets in the area.
