Wilson Farms

This farm’s tomatoes are the best summer heat antidote— fleshy and cool, never mealy. The papayas are huge, and the corn— well, teens say it’s worth biting into, braces be damned. Wilson Farms has every fruit and veggie you need for your Labor Day cookout, and many you don’t. Although some of the exotic produce is shipped in from foreign climes, the rest is farm-stand fresh.
