Meet the Cannons

Meet Bud and Jo Cannon, Oak Ridge Market vendors. They grow so many tomatoes on their mini-farm they’re known affectionately as “The Tomato People.” According to Bud, the first fruits (tomatoes are really fruit, did you know?) are “about a month away.” Look for them around late June, early July, depending on the weather. Tomatoes like it hot to thrive!

Interesting fact: Bud and Jo have been bringing their juicy tomatoes to the Oak Ridge Market since 1976. They were founding members of the East TN Farmers Association for Retail Marketing (ET FARM).

Both 84, they stay young the old fashioned way… by eating tomatoes every day! cannons
