BOTETOURT CO., Va. (WDBJ) - Families and farmers are celebrating tomatoes in Botetourt County.

This is the second year the Botetourt Famers Market hosted the event, held Saturday.

It featured live music, vendors, free tomato tastings, and a tomato sandwich competition.

We talked to the winner, Jason Bailey, who shared his first-place recipe.

”It is a sunflower seed and honey bread with a fried green tomato and a pink lady tomato on top with romaine lettuce and a Tasaki sauce,” explained Bailey.

Several judges helped pick the best sandwich. One of those taste testers included WDBJ7′s Robin Reed.
