Ford's Produce Supply Update

Ford’s Produce App!

Pre-St. Patrick’s Day demand is starting to pick-up for cabbage.

The cold weather of the past couple of weeks has slowed harvest in Florida for many vegetables, but the snow and winter weather in many states has slowed demand to be almost in lockstep with the supply.

The Chilean grape crop has settled into a much more normal season through February as grape arrivals to the east coast are up nearly 15% vs February 2014.

Florida sweet corn growers have experienced cold weather over the past week that has resulted in slight damages to the early season crop.

California’s lettuce season is improving all of the time.  Quality, supply, and pricing are all getting better with warmer weather and the transition to Southern fields from the desert regions.

Don’t forget to check out our dry goods selection.  The variety is growing all of the time and our customers that have tried our products choose to stay with us over their past vendors.

We hope everyone got through last week’s winter weather unscathed.
