We get our tomatoes on Saturday at the farmer's market in the town park in the summer.
The farmers get there around seven in the morining with all kinds of  good  home grown things to sell at really reasonable prices.
Love liveing in a small town.Everyone is so friendly,so different then city life

Associated Food Store sold them in 3-packs.  Mom would send me to the supermarket, that's what I recall.

People come from miles around to buy fresh Jersey tomatoes at our farm stands.

You should try Florida tomatoes - talk about bad!  They taste like cardboard at $3.98 a pound.  Can't even grow them here, the bugs and birds get them.
