Where to buy a decent beefsteak tomato in Seattle?

fivehats | Sep 18, 201909:55 PM     3

I haven't tasted a great slicing tomato in a very long time; since childhood in fact, back in upstate NY when my mom grew the best tasting beefsteaks and the like. We ate them immediately off the vine with a sprinkle of salt. Well, now I have a basil plant and would like to make a caprese salad, but I don't want the usual cardboard tomatoes in most grocery stores. I want a tomato like mom used to grow. Is that even available anymore, anywhere? East of the mountains? Do I have to drive to Yakima to get one, or are the big lumpy heirlooms in some stores any good? Tips and favorite veggie stands appreciated. (Maybe the Seattle farmers markets have good ones? I've been let down numerous times...)
