Today is a big day for fans of local food in Richmond. One of the Ultimate local foods, the vine ripened tomato, has two big parties being thrown in it's honor. Today you can visit either the Hanover Tomato festival, or the Shockoe Tomato Festival and get your fill of fabulous tomato concoctions or just go for the strait stuff with plenty of tomatoes to sample.
Afterwards you can rest in air conditioned comfort while taking in the newest Film to take on industrial agriculture. Food Inc. is playing at the Movieland Theater on the Boulevard with the 4:00 and 7:00 viewings to be followed by a panel discussion.
Finally, if you really want to cap of your weekend in style Lamaire restaurant is now describing it's menu as 'Farm to Table', according to local news stations. With fresh seasonal produce highlighted Sunday brunch is sounding even better....Enjoy!
