Federal Plaza - Choosing Tomatoes

Scott Staley | Aug 20, 2002 10:48 AM

Please forgive me if this is a bit off topic, but I'm new to shopping at farmers markets and coking in general. I was at the Fedral Plaza farmesrs market this morning and I was a little confused about selecting the right tomatoes. Many seemed to be split around the top and green and yellow. I know they are not grown to look nice, but could anyone give me some clue as to what's good or bad when looking at these tomatoes?
