Mild springtime weather is helping Florida farmers to keep good harvests going on squash, zucchini, tomatoes, corn, beans, and most other items.

West Coast growing areas are seeing some beautiful weather, and it’s really helping along many crops.

Tomato markets are soft and pricing is cheap on all varieties.  Moderate supplies are coming from Florida, but Mexican growers are really pumping out the product, and selling into the US at minimum legal pricing.

February is Potato Lovers Month.  Check out our mixed color marble potatoes or mixed color fingerling potatoes for a splash of color on the plate and a delicious starch choice.

Weather continues to be perfect in the Asparagus growing areas and volume is very good.

Don’t forget to check out our extensive line of dry goods.  We stock most essential consumables like paper towels, napkins, to-go boxes and utensil kits.

Ford's Produce Supply Update
February 19, 2017 Edition

Mild springtime weather is helping Florida farmers to keep good harvests going on squash, zucchini, tomatoes, corn, beans, and most other items.  Supplies are heavy, and sluggish post-Valentine’s Day demand is keeping pricing low.

West Coast growing areas are seeing some beautiful weather, and it’s really helping along many crops.  Lettuces are benefitting from the cool temperatures, heading up dense and without quality issues.  Broccoli and Cauliflower are plentiful, and farmers are eager to sell, keeping pricing low on the heavy volumes.

Tomato markets are soft and pricing is cheap on all varieties.  Moderate supplies are coming from Florida, but Mexican growers are really pumping out the product, and selling into the US at minimum legal pricing.  All varieties and sizes are at bargain levels currently, and quality has been absolutely beautiful.

February is Potato Lovers Month.  Check out our mixed color marble potatoes or mixed color fingerling potatoes for a splash of color on the plate and a delicious starch choice.

Weather continues to be perfect in the Asparagus growing areas and volume is very good.  Quality has been excellent, with most of the domestic supply coming from the Mexican desert currently instead of Peru.  We expect to see steady volume for the next week or so.  Prices remain very favorable.  This is still a great time to promote asparagus.

Don’t forget to check out our extensive line of dry goods.  We stock most essential consumables like paper towels, napkins, to-go boxes and utensil kits.  We have a huge selection of eco-friendly and compostable products.  Ask for a catalog!
