Tomatoes in Hastings

Can someone give me a tip on where to buy tomatoes in Hastings or Havelock North for preserving please. I am keen to make batches of Annabel Langbein's Tomato Harvest Sauce. Nothing listed on TM.

Get in your car and go for a drive out Pakowhai way. Often there are whole fields of cheap, pick your own field tomatoes to be had. also lots of roadside stalls.

That Harvest Sauce is the best.

It's too late now but the Lindisfarne College gala had big bags of tomatoes for $4 yesterday. Their gala is always good for vegetables - they have pallets of various things - carrots, onions, peaches, pumpkins etc.
Maybe next year.

Bother! Actually there are some gala days on this weekend (Hohepa is one plus one of the churches and maybe Maraekakaho) so maybe there might be veges there. Because I will also need the other goodies for the sauce. There was a place off Papakowhai advertising PYO but only open Thurs - Sun and I would quite like to get underway now, might have to be patient. Yes dbab it is pretty delicious!
