Red Tomato creates opportunities for our region’s farmers to become primary suppliers of a sustainable regional food system by coordinating the marketing and logistics of their products throughout the Northeast to grocery stores and other wholesale outlets that are widely accessible to shoppers.

Red Tomato coordinates marketing, logistics, and sales to create market opportunities for a regional(New England, NY, NJ, PA) farm network. By offering supermarkets one-stop access to season-long, farm-identified local, Red Tomato increases consumer access to local produce and ensures that small and mid-size farmers can compete in today’s wholesale market thereby solidifying farm sustainability.
