The gray days of January and February can make the very vibrant months of summer — and all of their gardening glory — seem so far away. Nothing like a walk through the Festival Foods Produce Department to remind us of all the amazing the color that nature can produce. Like those gorgeous deep red tomatoes on the vine? Well … those are from Minnesota! Say hello to Bushel Boy tomatoes! We’re able to get them year round from a state with a frigid climate similar to Wisconsin’s because Bushel Boy has greenhouses. And bees. They’ve got a great story to tell.
Our company leaders recently got a look at the Bushel Boy operation and were just blown away by the care, attention and overall dedication to providing Festival Food locations across the state with the great produce that we know you expect from us. And of course we’d love for you to give these a try so we’re offering a handful of $50 Festival Foods gift cards to help you create a delicious tomato-based meal featuring these wonderful tomatoes. We’ve got our own list of favorite tomato-based recipes including chicken sausage and gnocchi skillet, seared steak with tomato and blue cheese or white pizza with tomato and basil, but we want to know some of yours.
Give us your favorite tomato-based dish and we’ll randomly pick five as a winner of a $50 Festival Foods gift card. For a chance at a $50 Festival Foods gift card: Comment on this blog post with your favorite way to do tomatoes between Wednesday, Jan. 27, 2016 and midnight Sunday, Jan. 31, 2016. We’ll randomly pick five winners and announce them on Monday, Feb. 1, 2016.
