September 10 through 12, you can explore the wide world of heirlooms at the Third Annual National Heirloom Exposition at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds. With a full line up of workshops, cooking demonstrations, exhibits, and educational speakers, the three-day expo is a kind of Disneyland for home gardeners, organic farmers, food activists, and eaters of all stripes and ages.
At the farmers market this time of year, tomatoes are strutting their stuff in all sorts of glorious and quirky colors: green striped, white, pink, purplish-brown. Consumers have seed savers and amateur breeders to thank for discovering and sharing some of these heirloom varieties, like the Cherokee Purple.
