They don't seem to have many incompatible plants. The best thing to do is to plant things with a similar nature, and habit to the Elderberry.

I would imagine that tomatoes will fare just fine near the shrub. Certain cultivars may do better than others, so you may need to experiment some.

Here is an article that will give you ideas of proven companions to them: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/elderberry/elderberry-plant-companions.htm
