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 with great quality and prices this week.

Melons:
Good quality supplies are coming in for all melons. Cantaloupe and Honeydew have are coming form Honduras/Guatemala. Cantaloupe: supplies are improving and we are now seeing good supplies on the smaller sizes. Honeydew: we are seeing better supplies on the larger sizes. Watermelon: supplies are coming from Mexico and we are starting to see better supplies as we transition to Jalisco Mexico and a small area in Southern Sonora Mexico.

Broccoli:
Broccoli quality is good and supplies are getting better daily. Markets have hit their peak and seem to be sliding down. Product is more widely available in all growing regions, with downward pricing pressure from Mexican product.

Avocados:
Avocado markets seem to have stabilized and better volume is now showing in the states. Large and small fruit is readily available coming from Mexico.
