From WTOP.com:"10 Things to Buy at the Farmers Market This Week" (5/3/2016)
"There's good news for tomato fans: you don't have to wait until August to sink your teeth into the juicy, flavor-packed fruit. Emily Zaas of Black Rock Orchard grows her heirloom tomatoes in three large greenhouses during the winter, so they are ready for spring markets.
Unlike hydroponic tomatoes (which are also available outside of the typical tomato season), Zaas grows her tomatoes in dirt, which makes them more flavorful. The early-season crop also helps keep her farm's workers employed year-round. (WTOP/Rachel Nania)"
