This year, mother-daughter team Jamie and Gabrielle founded The Jersey Tomatoes, a creative endeavor that celebrates the state of New Jersey and the importance of family, friends, and food.
Their products include “Jersey Tomato Girl” memorabilia such as t-shirts, aprons, and beach bags. Their handmade purses are one-of-a-kind and are made of recycled or hand-chosen fabrics.
The website also features a recipe library, with some great recipes for homemade applesauce, crumb cake, avocado and arugula pesto, and more. Each month, the library is updated with new recipes and the stories that go along with them.
Additionally, The Jersey Tomatoes host events and open-houses for people to share and experience their creations.
