HUNTINGTON — Red is the new black over at the Wild Ramp and Central City Market as tomatoes are the hot trending garden produce of the moment.

 And you can celebrate the bounty as The Wild Ramp and Central City Market, 555 14th St. West, are celebrating all things tomato-related from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday Aug. 9. Enjoy Juicy samples, contests, hot food vendors featuring tomato-y goodness, and much more.

The contests include a free-to-enter Salsa contest, as well as contests for largest and ugliest tomato as well. There will be a three-person judging panel as well as the opportunity for the public to sample the salsas and vote for their favorite.

 If you are interested in participating in the salsa contest check out the Wild Ramp website for details at www.wildramp.org.
