Bradford Tomato Festival

The annual Bradford Tomato Festival at MU Bradford Research Center is ripe with opportunity — the opportunity to sample scores of freshly picked tomatoes and peppers, that is! The center grows some 150 varieties and will offer all that have ripened for tasting. Also, 10 to 15 local restaurants share samples of salsas and other delicious tomato dishes. Fest goers can also listen to expert presentations. Free.
