An already struggling citrus industry is facing even worse troubles with the California wildfires.

A large amount of the wintertime vegetable supply comes across the border from Mexico in McAllen, Texas and Nogales, Arizona.

Tomato prices shot up last week as the predicted shortages from Irma and other weather conditions have come to pass.

Egg usage goes way up for the holidays, with all of the wonderful baking and other recipes that depend on hen fruit.

There are plenty of seasonal items available, like root vegetables of all sorts as well as hard squashes.

We have lots of varities of pears for your dessert menus!  D’anjou, Red Pears, small Seckel, and Bosc.
