Sick of buying tomatoes that look ripe and are hard inside? Greek will bring your taste buds back to life as along the road there are numerous farmers who have set up a roadside stand to offer what they have picked that morning.
Totally awesome are those purple onions, and favorful garlic hanging together. Melons, and Squash during the season are actually ripe....and the tomatoes are to die for. This is what tomatoes are supposed to taste like. They also sell honey and wine all produced locally. Don't forget to ask about their olive oil, too.
