MADISON COUNTY, Ala. – Tomato sandwiches are a summer staple in the South. You start with two slices of tasty bread, top it with your favorite brand of mayo, add some freshly sliced heirloom tomatoes, and you’ve got yourself a tomato sandwich.

Local farmer’s markets usually hold annual tomato festivals to share with the community, but those gatherings were canceled last year.

This year several local markets have already shared plans for Tomato Sandwich Days with the community. Local farmers will donate fresh tomatoes to make free tomato sandwiches for the public.
