Tomato Festa at Eataly Dallas

Tomato Festa at Eataly Dallas

Get ready, amici: tomato season is in full swing! From juicy heirlooms to sweet and tangy cherry tomatoes, it's that time of year to enjoy the glorious bounty of the season. 

Meaning "golden apple" in Italian, a perfect pomodoro is one of life's simple pleasures. And, even though the tomato is not originally native to Italy (hard to believe, we know!), we're ready to embrace the season in true Italian fashion.

From August 16-22, we're embracing all things tomatoes with a wide variety in our produce department, and in-store tasting events. Read on to see how to make the most of peak pomodoro season, and for a recipe or two!

SHOP NEW TOMATO VARIETIES

It's hard to miss the rainbow explosion of local and vine-ripened tomatoes in our marketplace. Picked at the peak of ripeness and bursting with flavor, our selection of seasonal tomatoes includes even the most unique varieties to pair with your summer dishes!

Try peak season San Marzano tomatoes bursting with the flavor of Sicily, or colorful Heirlooms, each one unique due to lack of genetic mutations found in commercial tomato varieties. Then, pair with fresh basil, extra virgin olive oil, and our housemade mozzarella for a quick Caprese salad!

The tomato festivities don't stop at our fresh market, though – browse our dry market to stock up on high-quality Italian tomato products to enjoy all year long! Harvested at peak ripeness to capture the full flavor of Italian summer, find everything you need to make the perfect Italian meal in your own kitchen, from passata and sauces to bronze-extruded pasta.
