Ford's Produce Supply Update

Ford’s Produce App!
Google Play & Itunes.

We’re kind of in a transition time between seasons.  Many of the storage items like potatoes, onions, and apples are in short supply as farmers wait for the new season to begin...

Avocado markets are still a mess.  Demand outstrips supply and inventories have become depleted.

Sweet corn is plentiful with excellent quality.  It’s a great time to showcase this taste of summertime.

Blueberry production continues to decrease as we head towards the fall and end of domestic production.

Quality is improving as farmers are getting back on track and caught up in the fields.

Marginal quality coming from most squash areas has the market very high, but zucchini is plentiful and really pretty.

Most California vegetables are lower this week, with growers settling into normal summertime patterns.

Tomatoes are settling back down to more typical levels,  especially romas.  Grape tomatoes are a real bargain now.

Local News….

Local vine ripened and heirloom tomatoes are still in good volumes, though the rains have given them troubles lately.

Hot peppers and eggplants seem to be the most prevalent local vegetables currently.

Now you can place an order quickly byscrolling through your most commonly purchased items, and even choose from new items. Pictures are even linked to the items for ease of recognition.

You’ll notice along the bottom of the screen several choices. The first is the home screen, the second is the Order Guide, which shows your most frequently ordered items, then you have the entire Catalog, which lists all of our products by commodity, the Shopping Cart, where you can do a final review of your purchases, and then the Filing Cabinet Icon where you can view your recent orders and their status.
