Asparagus growers are seeing a lot of smaller sizing out of Peru.  El Nino has created a situation where it does not cool down enough at night.

Cabbage supplies across the country are starting to come online for the summer crop. New crops in Michigan, Wisconsin, and through the Carolinas are at full production.

The crazy hot weather that hit the Southeast last week finished the squash season in many areas.

Sweet Corn is winding up locally, but what’s still being harvested is beautiful.

The overabundance of watermelons continues, as shippers are struggling to sell the melons as fast as they can grow them.

We’re starting to see some NC tomato growers beginning their harvest.

The egg market is still a mess.  Extreme shortages due to the euthanized influenza sickened chickens and new overcrowding laws have driven prices through the roof.

What’s Local?
Peppers, eggplant, limited corn, blueberries, cabbage, squash, and lots of other items!  Tomatoes are just getting started.

What’s New This Week?
Beautiful Local Mixed Heirloom Tomatoes, 10# boxes
