  • Get fresh with some tomatoes and basil at the farmer's market.

Summer eats are ripe with fresh, bright flavors and prominent among them are tomatoes and basil. This weekend, you'll get two opportunities to celebrate the tasty union of these two foods when Heirloom Farmers Markets celebrates the abundance of the season with live music, demonstrations and, of course, plenty of basily and tomatoey wares for purchase. 

From 8 a.m. until noon on Saturday, July 18, you can peruse tomato and basil concoctions like basil and sun-dried tomato bread, chilled gazpacho, tomato jams and basil-infused soaps and olive oils at the Oro Valley Farmers Market (10901 N. Oracle Road).

Then on Sunday, July 19, the Rillito Park Farmers Market (4502 N. First Ave.) will present all of those goods and more for market visitors. Live music, courtesy of Paige Anderson & The Fearless Kin (CA), will keep crowds entertained while special chef demonstrations, beginning at 10 a.m., will teach you how to make the most of your newly bought, local tomatoes and bunches of basil. The Rillito Park Farmers Market also runs from 8 a.m. until noon.

Now all you need is a fresh ball of mozzarella and you've got yourself a caprese...
