The Source:  Commodity Updates
Your source for learning how weather and other conditions across the country and the globe affect the quality, availability, and pricing of your fresh fruits and produce.


Strawberry - DEMAND EXCEEDS SUPPLY and it looks to continue through Mother's Day weekend. We are in a seasonal supply gap after Oxnard ended most major production and the Santa Maria and Salinas/Watsonville districts are not putting out enough volume yet. Shippers are quoting oversold/sold out each day. Orders are being pushed or filled rated as well.


Avocado - Mexico is over 70% harvested for their season and California growers are harvesting good volumes. Quality is good for both.

Local Availability
"Our cold and wet early Spring weather has resulted in much of our produce production being several weeks later than usual, just like last year. Over-wintered produce such as cilantro, spinach, leeks, parsley, and kale have had a bit of a rough time over-wintering this year (though not quite as rough as last year) with some variable quality and lower volumes than normal starting to become available. Some over-wintered products such as leeks and parsley have been particularly hurt this Winter as our long, cold, and wet Winter has hurt them. Most farmers first field work didn't get started until about 3 weeks ago when the planting of spring greens, lettuces and other cool season crops started in between cold snaps. In full swing as of this week, though delayed a couple of times by cold and/or rainy weather. Most transplanted crops are under protective cover. Our long winter has delayed our local season." From Bill Walker, NJ Dept of Ag.

This is what we are forecasting:

Last week of April/early May - over-wintered items, Dandelion Greens, Spinach, Leeks, and Herbs.

Early May - Asparagus and Lettuces.

Currently, we have locally sourced Mushrooms (Chester County, PA) and Potatoes (PA & NY).
