Locally Sourced

The PRO*ACT Advantage

Online Ordering
June 2, 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.
Asparagus is winding down.
Greens, Lettuces, and Cabbages are available.
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.

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.


Oranges - The California Navel crop is dropping off and California Valencia crop has started. Labor has become an issue as the labor force is split to pick the stone fruit harvests as well. Valencia quality is very color and color is nice. <<Click here for information on Valencia Oranges>>


Lemons - Demand exceeds supplies on 165-count and larger sized lemons. Expect this to continue to get worse through the summer and into the fall. The ongoing drought in California is to blame for decreased production volumes and decreased size growth of the fruit. 


Stone Fruit - California Peaches, Nectarines, and Apricots are in good demand. Sizing is adjusting with more of the larger fruit and less of the smaller fruit being harvested. Quality is excellent.
