meder.jpgIf you’re like us, you live for August and September — dry-farm tomato season! The best, the most intensely-flavored, the juiciest – tomatoes the way the Great Mother intended them to be.

And there are lots of terrific tomatoes out there at our farmers markets. But now I know the source of the very best.

Meder Street Market is a boutique stand open at the bustling (ha!) crossroads of Meder & Western Drive on the Westside.

Sundays from 10am until 3pm, you can find neighbors hanging out over bins of brilliantly-hued flowers, basils, onions, tomatoes, squashes, beans. It’s a charming, laid-back scene where the best tomatoes in the area go for a mere $3/lb.

Organic, home-grown, yeah baby!
