Ford's Produce Supply Update
November 20, 2017 Edition


Tomato markets started to ease off late last week, as Thanksgiving demand begins to wind down.  Supplies are still very limited, but demand is more closely aligned with it now.

The transition from Central to  Southern California is almost complete, and supply chains are improving daily.  More supplies are available, with better prices and better quality is the rule as the season goes on.

More and more apple varieties are available, and prices are softening as shippers get their harvesting done and get in the mood to sell apples.  Demand will be strong going into the holidays.

Squash and zucchini are in an oversupply situation right now, with more available than the farmers can sell.  Pepper, on the other hand, has suddenly dried up.  Prices soared last week with the shorter supplies.

Georgia’s corn season is wrapping up and everyone is looking to Florida to be the next source.  Georgia is finishing a 2-3 week supply gap, going into Thanksgiving, so supplies are extremely short.  As Thanksgiving passes, look for prices to continue to rise until then.

Egg usage goes way up for the holidays, with all of the wonderful baking and other recipes that depend on hen fruit.  There’s a limited amount of chickens doing their jobs, and they can’t really put in any overtime to make up the difference.  As a result, there’s always a shortage as we go into Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday season.

We still have some pumpkins and gourds for your Thanksgiving decorations, but they’re going fast.  Give us a call if you need some.

We have all kinds of winter hard squashes.  Turban, Kabocha, and of course the old favorites of Butternut, Spaghetti and Acorn.

Q:  What smells the best at Thanksgiving dinner?  A:  Your nose.

Q:  What sound does a turkey's phone make? A:  Wing! Wing!
