Asparagus – Pricing is down, with flat-lined demand after the holidays. Quality remains very nice.
Broccoli & Cabbage – We’re stocking and shipping local broccoli now and quality has been gorgeous. Good color and fresh curds at a great price. Cabbage is beginning locally as well. Both items will wrap up very shortly as the heat finishes their seasons.
Corn – Beautiful, sweet and plump ears from fresh fields. Quality is excellent and pricing is very favorable on the heavy supplies. We expect supplies to tighten up this week with the Memorial Day demand.
Cucumbers – Georgia fields are wide open on most items now, and cucumber quality is much improved.
Eggs – Though pricing has been sliding for the past few weeks, it still remains high overall due to increased consumer demand.
Lettuce – Lettuce is going through its twice yearly transition to new growing regions and things are always a little rocky during this time. Further complicating the transition is the fire that destroyed the Taylor Farms packing plant, putting pressure on other lettuce and salad producers to cover the shortfall. Supplies are limited currently on many items.
Peaches – Peach season has begun! We have beautiful tree-ripened South Carolina peaches on hand. Does anything say summertime in the south better than peaches?
Potatoes – Fingerling Potatoes remain extremely limited. Greater Tater, our fingerling potato supplier, and one of the largest Fingerling potato shippers in the country has just had a crop failure, and are expecting a 7-8 week gap in production. Supplies are suddenly in very short supply, especially on red and purple fingerling potatoes. Other potatoes are in good supply and great quality.
Squash & Zucchini – Are reaching peak season locally. Great growing conditions have come together for a great harvest. High quality and plentiful, it’s a great time to feature summer squashes on your menus.
Blueberries & Strawberries– Local strawberries are all finished. We’re back to beautiful Driscoll strawberries for the summertime. Blueberries, though, are at peak season locally and they’ve been absolutely gorgeous.
Q: Why won’t clams share their food?
A: Because they’re too shellfish.
