Washington apple growers are advising that there are approximately 40% fewer grannies on hand compared to the last 2 years.

There are spotty supplies on many varieties which will continue through the summer months.

March’s late freeze really did a number on many peach and blueberry farmers in the southeast.

We’re making the seasonal transition from Chilean grapes to California fruit, and quality has really improved with the switch.

Florida and Mexican vegetable fields have basically finished for the season, and the harvest is moving north for many items.

Corn is reaching peak production in Florida.  Quality doesn’t get much better.

Strong lettuce supplies persist this week as most growers are slightly ahead of their respective planting schedules.

Local News….

Local strawberries and blueberries are still going strong, and we’ll feature them as long as we can.

We’re got the first local tomatoes of the year last week!  Beautiful!

Plentiful supplies of local cabbage.

Squash and zucchini are coming into strong volume.

Cucumbers should start this coming week.
