Some of the tomatoes that I am picking now, mid-Aug., have small black spot's that look like freckles. Are these healthy to eat?

It sounds like bacterial speck and the condition won't damage the tomatoes other than mar the skins. They are perfectly fine to eat. If you don't like the specks on the skins you can cut them off, but as long as you wash the tomatoes before eating them, they will be fine.
