Locally Sourced

The PRO*ACT Advantage

May 12, 2015
Local Availability
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). Most farmers' fieldwork started late again this year, planting spring greens, lettuces, and other cool season crops between cold snaps.
Now Available: 
Local Asparagus, Romaine, Swiss Chard, and more!
Jersey Fresh Forecast:
Basil - likes warm weather; should be available mid-June.
Peaches- the season will be delayed due to a longer, colder winter and slowly warming spring; yellow peaches will be early to mid-July and white peaches will be late-July.
Squash- zucchini and yellow squash should begin to harvest in the next 4 weeks.

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.


Stone Fruit - California Peaches and Nectarine are readily available with excellent quality being reported. Lacking the freezing temperatures needed for a good fruit set means the next varieties will have less fruit on the trees and mostly larger fruit.


Watermelon - Most production is coming from Sonora, MX; with some light supplies from southern California. The market is firming up with demand for Memorial Day weekend.


Oranges - The California Navel crop is dropping off and California Valencias have started. Labor to pick the fruit has become an issue with the labor force split to pick the stone fruits as well. Demand is exceeding supplies on 113ct.
