Asparagus – Pricing is down, with flat-lined demand after the holidays. Quality remains very nice.
Cabbage – We’re stocking and shipping local Cabbage and the season has been great so far. We’re expecting their season to continue through August as long as the weather cooperates with them.
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 continues and quality and varieties are improving every week! Feature them on your menus as long as you can. They’re gorgeous!
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. Idaho potatoes continue to have a strong season and New Crop Florida red potatoes have been really nice this year.
Squash and 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.
Tomatoes – Local tomatoes are here! We have beautiful roma and vine ripened tomatoes from Duplin County.
