Coincidentally, this morning I came across a seed supplier new to me.  They
sell only open-pollinated tomatoes and have the largest selection of OP
tomatoes I have ever seen, and by far.  It's an incredible selection.  

It's here:  http://store.tomatofest.com/

They have a 20-variety collection of what the owner says have been his most
successful tomatoes at various markets.


$15 minimum order required, but they have so many wonderful varieties that
shouldn't be difficult.

I have not ordered from them (never heard of them until this morning) so I
have no personal experience with their seeds or service.  I looked them up
on the Garden Watchdog, and three people were dissatisfied with a bunch of
people pleased; not too bad.
