We’re broadening our organics lineup, and are looking forward to stocking more items on a regular basis.

Most vegetable prices are staying down this week, with weak post-holiday demand making farmers work hard to sell their crops.

Root vegetables and hard squashes are still plentiful, and prices are at the best
levels of the year.

Chilly weather this past week has slowed down corn production. Prices are higher on the shorter supplies.

Roma Tomatoes are cheaper this week, due to the post-Thanksgiving lull in sales.

A great harvest with high quality potatoes has kept the potato market soft, even going into the holiday.

Florida Citrus has started their season, but with much less fanfare than in recent years. The greening disease continues to effect many trees, and the orange crop will be much shorter this year.

Onion prices in the Northwest are at the lowest of the season right now, however freight rates are at their highest due to hauling Christmas trees! Overall, though, the prices are extremely favorable right now.

Nationwide strawberry demand still exceeds supply due to recent rains and limited volume in the California growing areas and limited production in the Mexico growing areas.
