Cherries

Asparagus – Almost all domestic growers are finished for the season, putting pressure on Peruvian farmers to fill demand. Supplies are much tighter and prices are moving upward.

Berries – Blueberries are in full swing in North Carolina. It’s a perfect time to feature them as quality and pricing are at peak levels.

Broccoli – Our local growers are finishing their broccoli season, though quality has been beautiful. Prices will rise as we move back to the west coast.

Cabbage – Our local growers are harvesting good supplies of cabbage right now and prices are staying low as they try to move what they have to sell.

Cherries! – Fresh Cherry season is here. We have beautiful dark red cherries that are delicious. Feature them while they’re available.

Corn – Harvests are coming in strong and supplies are very good. Prices have stayed low and quality has been beautiful this week. Our local season should begin very soon.

Limes – Prices are staying low as Mexican growers have lots of volume harvesting right now. Quality is better also.

Onions – Seem to be harvested just about everywhere right now. Supplies are strong, quality is great and pricing is very favorable.

Peaches – Are widely available from South Carolina and North Carolina growers are scheduled to begin harvesting around the first of July. They’ve been beautiful so far with our mild spring and we’re looking forward to a great summer season.

Peppers – With Georgia finally getting better volumes, we’re seeing prices easing downwards. NC Farmers should begin harvesting peppers this coming week. Quality remains very good. Colored peppers are plentiful and gorgeous.

Tomatoes – More local growers are starting to harvest local tomatoes. Romas, Vineripes and even some varieties of heirlooms are available now. It’s really a symbol of Summer in the South when our delicious sweet local tomatoes become available.

Squash – Last week’s wet weather caused a speed bump for some local farms, but others are harvesting heavy volumes of squash right now. now and they’re at rock bottom prices due to abundance of supply.
