This Week’s Highlights – June 29, 2020

  • Citrusburst Finger Limes – a fun, yet tiny fruit that can be used as an interesting garnish on a baked good or cocktail, or even in a dressing to add a citrus element. Top a fruit salad with finger lime pulp, just be sure to leave out any other citrus because these will surely be the fresh pop that you need!
  • Pineapples – Quality is high and taste is wonderful.
  • Romain/Romain Hearts – Supply is becoming limited. Expect reduced supply for at least the next month. With the recent demand increase, we have seen market pricing advance dramatically.
  • Cantaloupe – ESCALATED – extreme conditions continue to wreak havoc on domestic melon supply.  Expect limit supply, quality issues and higher pricing.
  • Arugula – Supply and quality are good.

This Week’s Highlights – June 1, 2020

This Week’s Highlights – May 18, 2020

  • Kale – Bunched kale supply is expected to be plentiful for the next few weeks. Quality is good.
  • English Cucumbers – Good volume and good quality.
  • Artichokes – Good volume for the balance of this month and prices are steady.
  • Cauliflower – Excellent volume all week. Quality is good.
  • Tomatoes – Roma – Demand appears to be shifting slightly to romas as buyers move away from high-priced rounds. Quality is excellent.  REMINDER: Do not store tomatoes in the refrigerator, refrigeration causes the tomatoes to become mealy and loose flavor.
