Asparagus markets are on the way down, the Peru continuing to have better supplies as pricing will slowly come down towards the end of May.

The Stone fruit season has begun and we’ve had peaches, cherries, plums and nectarines.

As for California products, Celery supplies remain extremely limited, but cauliflower hit the skids as several growing areas on the east coast have begun harvesting.

Squash, the bad news… Mexico is finished for the season, taking a lot of volume out of the market.

Tomato markets have been trying to rise for about 3 weeks now.  But after several false starts, prices are changing this week.

Corn is reaching peak production in Florida.  Quality doesn’t get much better.

Local News….

Local strawberries and blueberries are still going strong, and we’ll feature them as long as we can.

We’re seeing good supplies of local cabbage.

Broccoli just started locally.  Check it out.

Squash and zucchini are really cranking up locally, with many farmers reaching harvest time.
