Juliette is a small town in Monroe County made famous for being the site where the 1991 movie "Fried Green Tomatoes" was filmed.

Saturday and Sunday they celebrated their annual Green Tomato Festival.

Elizabeth Bryant from the Whistle Stop Cafe says over the course of the weekend, they went through 25-30 cases of green tomatoes.

The event also featured music and craft sales.

Bryant says Juliette's economy is focused around tourism from the movie, and that they get a steady stream of visitors year-round, slowing down in winter.
