Ford's Produce Supply Update

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.
