North Carolina squash and cucumber growers are winding down for the year, finishing a great season.

The fall transition kicks into gear late October/early November. In a normal year, the final harvest of the Summer Salinas Season is typically the most susceptible to yield loss and quality concerns.

Thanks to improved growing techniques by our farmers, we expect to have local tomatoes into December this year.

The unseasonably warm weather last week has extended our local cucumber and squash seasons for a little while longer.

Tropical storm Nate generated significant damage to Costa Rica's infrastructure, affecting Pineapple production.

California Citrus growers have finished their valencia crop, and we’re still about 2-3 weeks away from harvesting Navel oranges.

Asparagus markets are way down this week, with heavier supplies coming from Mexican and Peruvian growers.

We have all kinds of fall decorations! Choose from gourds, pumpkins of all sizes, and indian corn.
