On the Market: "Rain or shine, every Saturday, I am here. While I relish every season, I especially wait all year for the dry-farmed tomatoes from Molino Creek Farm that arrive August through November. They are grown without irrigation along the central coast of California. Because they aren't watered, they are the most intensely flavorful tomatoes I've ever had." —Maureen Wilmot, executive director of the Organic Farming Research Foundation in Santa Cruz, CA
