Welcome to Farmer’s Market Finds—a summer series on what to buy at the farmer’s market week to week. Every Wednesday, we’ll visit Union Square Greenmarket in New York City and choose one in-season fruit or vegetable to focus on. Then we’ll share some of our favorite recipes to try out at home. This week, tomatoes take the spotlight.

From ketchup to tomato soup, this juicy fruit (yes, it’s a fruit!) is extremely versatile. While some tomatoes are available year-round, they’re technically in season from July to October. Look for plump, heavy tomatoes with smooth, glossy skin that’s mostly blemish-free. In terms of color, it depends on the variety. Regardless, make sure that the tomato is slightly firm, but not too squishy. Once you’ve found your perfect match, bite into one of these luscious tomato recipes.
