Tomatoes are hands-down the most talked about item in our Farmers Market Boxes! For good reason too. They are so ripe and delicious that it's just a bonus that they're so jam packed full of goodness.
Here's the scoop:
- Tomatoes are a HUGE source of antioxidants. Especially the antioxidant lycopene which some studies show reduces your risk of heart disease and cancer
- They are also packed with different types of vitamins. Including Folate (a B vitamin) which is crucial for normal tissue growth and different cell functions
