Cherry Tomatoes Have Arrived With a Vengeance


A stroll through the Union Square farmers’ market about half an hour ago turned up a bounty of wee tomatoes. While the regular-sized fruits have been at the market for a few weeks now, the cherry variety, which includes the orange-hued Sun Golds, seen above, has been a rarer sight. But now it’s arrived with a vengeance, just in time to provide excellent late-summer snacking. The tomatoes pictured here are from Maxwell Farm near Changewater, New Jersey, and sell for $3.50 a pint.
