These are gorgeous heirloom tomatoes at Whole Foods Market. Ali and I went there recently to check out their awesome display of local and slave-free tomatoes! Our local Whole Foods Market is our sponsor this week. Check below for details on how to win!
We want to know where you buy your tomatoes! We have spent the last 8 weeks educating our readers and fans about modern day slavery, especially in tomato farming, in hopes that you’ll become more aware of where and how to buy tomatoes. Many grocery stores and markets, including Whole Foods Market, have already signed Recipe for Change’s Fair Food Pledge promising to only stock their shelves with slavery-free tomatoes.
So will you pledge to only buy tomatoes from those stores, or from your local farmer’s market? And will you share a photograph of your purchasing those tomatoes?
Ali and I have loved this recipe exchange. We hope you have discovered some amazing food blogs, some stellar recipes, and most importantly, you have learned and become more aware of how you can be active in advocating for others, especially when it comes to our food!
Each link below will take you back to each week of the exchange. You can scroll down to the InLinkz and see each recipe that was shared. Don’t miss the recipes in the comments section either!
Starting in the top left corner, and going clockwise, here are the recipes that I featured during our #TomatoLove Recipe Exchange:
Mexican Veggie Flatbread
Truffle-Roasted Tomato Hummus
Caprese Couscous Salad in Tomato Cups
Heirloom Tomato Gazpacho with Roasted Poblano Peppers
