My journey and love affair with tomatoes began in April 2005. Having just returned for travelling in Australia and looking for a new a challenge I was introduced to ‘Isle of Wight Tomatoes’ and shortly afterwards began selling them direct to the consumer at Farmers’ Markets in London. My passion for tomatoes is as strong now as it was then, forever looking for new, interesting and the tastiest varieties. My favourite product by far is still our fresh tomatoes, especially some of the interesting small colourful varieties. They all have their own unique flavours that help create some of the most amazing salads.

I started in January 2017 and my role at The Tomato Stall is very diverse. I ensure all products are received by the customers with the highest quality standards possible, whilst being safe and efficient. It is certainly an ever changing, ever growing business and I enjoy being part of those changes. I am proud of what we have achieved as a team. My favourite tomato variety is Piccolo. Piccolo is a small cherry variety which is high in sugar. A good Piccolo is like eating a healthy sweet. My children will eat them like sweets so it's a good way to get them eating healthy foods. At The Tomato Stall we grow the best Piccolo that you will find.

I’ve been looking after our warehouse team since 2012, focusing on giving the team everything they need to complete the daily orders for our customers. I enjoy the role, especially the new people we get to work with each year. We have a small team that gets on well with each other. My favourite tomato variety is the Cocktail Vine, simply sliced and put on top of cheese and a nice fresh loaf.

The best part of my role is being able to work with a dedicated, passionate team that all strive to produce the best quality tomato products available. My favourite tomato variety is Mini Plum and my favourite product is Passata because it’s so easy to use.

In a nutshell, I sell the best tomatoes and tell you how wonderful they can be! Over the four years since I joined the Tomato Stall I have eaten more tomatoes than I ever dreamed possible, fallen in love with Bloody Marys’ & found out tomatoes are actually healthier for you when cooked! All for spreading the word each season about what is new and how we can reach you. My favourite product is by far the Oak Roasted Tomato Balsamic, I practically drink the stuff!

I joined in 2013 and as pack line leader I take care of all punnet production, from raw stock to finished product. I really like having the ability to help with new product development, creating specs for speciality punnets. My favourite tomato variety – our piccolo tomatoes in Spanish style chicken bake with peppers.

Being the Tomato Stall veteran, I have seen a lot of progress since joining in 2010. I now manage all fruit purchasing so our many products have the right product required to make them. We grow nearly 200 varieties and I love that no day is ever the same! My favourite product has to be the Slow Roasted Tomato and Chilli Jam. Perfect for a cheese toasted sandwich!

I joined the Tomato Stall team in 2014. I make sure our wholesale customers get everything they need on time and we can get fresh tomatoes to around 28 farmers’ markets per week. It’s exciting working in a business that is fast-paced with a lot of activity! I suppose an added benefit for me is that I know we are focused on sustainability & the environment. I think it’s important to take those into consideration when you work for a business. My favourite product is the Oak Roasted Toms. Love the versatility and they taste great added to any salad, pasta dish or pizza.
