For the week of January 14th

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.

Strawberries:
Cold weather continues to hamper the berry supplies in Florida. Rain in California is slowing down harvest, and supplies are getting tight. Quality has been nice, but with the rain, the quality will take a turn for the worse. Prices are slightly higher.

Asparagus:
Prices are high and product is tight as production in Peru winds down. It will be another 2 weeks or so until Mexico starts ramping up their production. Expect product to be scarce until then. Limited availability on larger sizes.

Lemons:
Supplies are coming from California and demand exceeds supplies on 140’s and smaller sized fruit. The desert crop is much lighter this year and production is starting to fall off as we look at an early end to their season. The Central Valley is going with limited supplies. Ventura crop will not start until February. We can expect demand exceeds supplies through January and into February.

Peppers:
Quality has been coming in from Mexico, and prices are steady to slightly higher. Florida supplies are very limited and prices are higher.
