For the week of February 11th

Close contact with our growers about current weather and growing conditions allows us to give weekly updates to keep you informed. We offer current quality and market updates for each category of produce all in one place. Here are some products to buy with caution this week.

Arugula:
Baby Arugula continues to be unavailable, as one of the most sensitive items. Wild Arugula has had generally good quality, but we have seen some yellowing and discoloration before use-by dates.

Squash:
Supplies of yellow squash from Mexico are starting to tighten up due to some issues with white flies. This is causing prices to be higher. However, zucchini supplies are steady with good quality.

Onions:
The Red and Yellow onion market is showing steady but firm prices from the Northwest U.S. Large yellow onions like Colossal and Super Colossal are coming up short in the sorting of onions and they will continue to be tight. White onions are still in tight supply and some shippers from the Northwest U.S. are already finished with white onions.
