Local Availability
In a Nutshell: Our long winter has delayed our local season and our cold, wet spring has resulted in 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 with lower volumes than normal starting to become available. Leeks and parsley have been particularly hurt. Most farmers' fieldwork started late again this year, planting spring greens, lettuces, and other cool season crops between cold snaps. From Bill Walker, NJ Dept of Ag. "Jersey Fresh" report.

Now Available: Local Asparagus!!!
