Ford's Produce Supply Update

Mild springtime weather is helping Florida farmers to keep good harvests going on squash, zucchini, tomatoes, corn, beans, and most other items.

West Coast growing areas are seeing some beautiful weather, and it’s really helping along many crops.

Tomato markets are soft and pricing is cheap on all varieties.  Moderate supplies are coming from Florida, but Mexican growers are really pumping out the product, and selling into the US at minimum legal pricing.

February is Potato Lovers Month.  Check out our mixed color marble potatoes or mixed color fingerling potatoes for a splash of color on the plate and a delicious starch choice.

Weather continues to be perfect in the Asparagus growing areas and volume is very good.

Don’t forget to check out our extensive line of dry goods.  We stock most essential consumables like paper towels, napkins, to-go boxes and utensil kits.

The Savarin is very economical, and allows you to offer desserts for any low budget situation.  To serve, all you need to do is to dip the Savarin into a pain of boiling water and light syrup, let them swell to their full size in a matter of seconds, and then with a slotted spoon deposit them into their plastic case.  The Savarin will continue to swell and fill the serving cup.   When cooled, splash them with rum, decorate, and serve!  The Savarin can be held in the hand if you glaze to seal in the flavors.
