Tomatofest!

Tomatofest is a celebration of all things tomato. This celebration of tomatoes is a unique collaboration between Fiesta Farms and The West End Food Coop, Toronto’s almost open food hub working to create a thriving local food culture in Toronto’s West End.

On August 9th from 5-8 we invite YOU to join us under the Fiesta Garden’s Canopy (across the road from Fiesta Farms) for a Tomatofest! Canning party. Hosted by Fiesta Farms and The West End Food Coop, we’ll be working together to jar lots of tomatoes to take home & use to create other great recipes like the ones you find on this page.

Registration for this event is very limited, so be sure to sign up today.  The $10 fee will be donated to The West End Food Coop’s Community Cannery.

The recipes for tomato sauce, salsa and ketchup you’ll find on this page are all from The West End Food Coop’s Community Cannery, a series of ongoing workshops where community members can everything from apples to zucchini. These folks know what they’re doing, so be sure not to miss out!

See you on August 8th!
