Palmetto Tasty Tomato Festival Recap!

Hi, Slow Food Columbia!

Well, the Palmetto Tasty Tomato Festival was an enormous success, y'all.

And by enormous we mean HUGE!!!

Just dazzling! Thank you to everyone who came out to support GOOD, CLEAN and FAIR foodways and sustainability in our communities!

When our Slow Food Community gets together, it really is a little bit magical.

And very tasty.

We were expecting maybe 500-700ppl, and with a few quirks and such, City Roots farm was able to accommodate 1200 guests!

It was a glorious day enjoyed by all.
