Want to be a Ford's Produce Local Vendor?

This crazy hot weather has slowed down local production on many items.  And then we had those heavy rains last week which caused some troubles too.

Local tomatoes are still going strong.  Absolutely beautiful fruit in all varieties is making this prime-time feature them in your menu specials.

Sweet corn continues to be limited, but Michigan is beginning to harvest.

Squash remains very tight across the country, with prices reflecting the shortages.

Eggs just keep cranking up.  Drastically short supplies caused by the Avian flu and California’s restrictions on chicken overcrowding continue to worsen.

Stonefruit season is winding down, with peaches and cherries starting to slow down.

Apple season is getting very close, and we should begin seeing some new crop Galas and other varieties arrive over the upcoming weeks.

What’s Local?
Peppers, eggplant, baby tomatoes, heirloom tomatoes, blueberries, greens, squash, and zucchini

Overheard in the vegetable patch….”Oh Honeydew...
