2019 Heirloom Tomato Seedling Sale

  • Bang Bang Pie & Biscuits 2051 N California Ave Chicago, IL United States (map)

Join us for our favorite micro-fundraiser. Purchase one (or a few) heirloom tomato seedlings and support Slow Food Chicago's programming in the process!

Sticking around for Memorial Day weekend? You don’t want to miss Slow Food Chicago’s Annual Heirloom Tomato Seedling Sale. As in past years, we will have many different varieties (both determinate and indeterminate) of tomato seedlings (including varieties listed on the Ark of Taste) looking for a good home. We’ll be hanging out with our seedlings (and probably some biscuits and pie too) at the lovely pie garden behind Bang Bang on California. Sending a big thank you to our growers this year : Tom and Judy Casten (Hinsdale, IL) and Carl Smits of Smits Farm (Chicago Heights, IL) who are nurturing hundreds of seedlings so that they are healthy and strong when they go home with you on May 25th!

See the list of available seedlings here :

Seedlings will be for sale for $5/ea. Funds raised support the operations and programming of Slow Food Chicago.
