How bad is your allergy? I'm sure you don't have to go, especially considering your circumstances but maybe you could go without touching or eating anything there? Then again that would be pretty boring I guess :/

I have a funny feeling that normally that would be a problem but if they are cooking them or there is a lot of plants themselves it may cause a reaction.

OP is from Switzerland, so I feel that La Tomatina in Bunol (Valencia), Spain is a definite possibility; in that case, tomato throwing would definitely occur, so I don't think OP will be attending. (P.S. Sorry about the lack of proper accents in the Spanish names, I don't believe my phone keyboard has them.)

My cousin is allergic to nuts and she once broke out in a reaction by walking into a store that sold pecan products by the barrel. Just whatever was in the air caused hives and swelling.

At beginning of employment most employers ask if there are any health concerns they should be aware of for limitations or emergencies. I doubt a tomato allergy ever seemed important to mention.

I've only ever been asked if I have any health issues that may prevent me from doing the job. I think it's illegal for an employer to ask you to go into your detailed medical record. And I don't think many employees with an allergy to tomatoes want to tell them that because, A. It is not something that should affect them at their job, B. It is such an uncommon allergy that some douche may do something to see if you're just faking (I've had this happen to me....), and C. Some companies might then

@25, there are jobs in which a tomato allergy would affect your work. I, for example, work in a Safeway produce department and a tomato allergy would definitely be something I should tell management. That being said, it seems like OP's job isn't any type of food handling job and therefore management probably didn't know about the food allergy.
