Just a shout out to the Art Farm, the proprietors of which have produced some spectacular tomatoes over the last few weeks. I've been on the island awhile, but am new to the Art Farm's produce. Props to you guys for your fine work.

HOURS:
M & W 3-5:30
S 10-12

On the South Shore past the Boy Scout Camp if you're going West on the straightaway. Be prepared to come early and stand in line.

I love Art Farm - the quality is stellar. I find the prices very reasonable too!

They have a cilantro btw that's more "grasslike" than leaves - a different variety I've never seen anywhere before. I have developed a serious addiction to the stuff. It's awesome with those fabulous tomatoes...

Do tomatoes grow year round there? Or are they still seasonal?

JulieKay, that sounds like culantro instead of cilantro. I bought it at Pueblo once thinking it was something else, and a chef on one of the forums told me what it was based on my description.

Quite possibly - it tastes and smells just like cilantro, but it is a different herb. I'm going to go look it up now - thank you! 🙂

Culantro also called recao in the Spanish speaking community -- used in making sofrito and recaito. You can see these Goya products at all the supermarkets. Can't live without recao.

I've bought Goya sofrito and recaito before - used it for cooking in Texas. But I've never seen recao/culantro before - I'm thrilled to have learned something new. Thanks everyone!
