Surfas Culinary District
You may have joined us before for summer tasting events at this well known culinary supply store but this year we start the excitement early with a one-day pop up seedling sale on March 26. Come check out a tidy collection of some really wacky varieties, grab a snack in the cafe and visit with some of our favorite guest chefs and home cooks who will be hard at work preparing their favorite tomato recipes in the test kitchen. And of course leave some time to wander through the store that always incites exclamations like “Oh, THAT’s where people buy those things!”. Then you can buy one! Kitchen treasures abound, see you there.
