Do the tomatoes you spent all season growing in your garden bear an uncanny resemblance to the cast of Twilight? Are they especially fat, or appallingly ugly? Then haul them down to the Needham Farmers Market this Sunday and compete in the season’s first TomatoFest – your tomatoes could be your claim to fame.

TomatoFest is a celebration of the taste, beauty, versatility and nutrition of the locally grown tomato, according to a press release sent out by the market, and all local gardeners are invited to participate.

Enter your tomato in Ugliest Tomato, Biggest Tomato, or Tomato That Looks Most Like A Celebrity contest. Prizes for the winners, of course.

There will be a Guess the Weight of the Tomatoes contest for kids 12 and under.

Contests start at 3 p.m. The market lasts from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Good luck to all!
