Best plum tomato seeds for NC climate (zone 7b)

loves2cook82 | Jan 25, 201907:46 AM     6

Every spring I visit my local farmers market and buy a variety of heirloom tomato plants for my garden: German Johnson, Pink Girl, Cherokee Purple...
This year I'd like to add a plum tomato to the mix - something with less water and better for sauces than the large heirlooms (although they do STILL make a great sauce, if I manage to have any leftover after all the BLTs and Caprese salads of the summer). I've never seen a plum tomato plant at my farmers market, so was thinking of ordering some seeds to start indoors this winter. Any recommendations for a particularly good seed and where to order from? I'm not sure of what variety: Roma? San Marzano? Something else I've never heard of?
