The Tomato Capital of the World

By Linda Tancs

They’re seeing red in Jacksonville, Texas –plump, red tomatoes, that is.  Harvest time is here, which means the Tomato Fest is just a ticking clock away.  Held the second Saturday each June, the city’s best fest illustrates all manner of dealing with their prized fruit:  peeling, mashing, eating, and shooting.  Home of the world’s largest bowl of salsa, they’ll be plenty of that, too.  The event takes place downtown between Commerce and Austin streets.
