Have and enjoyable Independence Day weekend!

To better serve you, we will NOT be making any changes to our schedule this weekend.
 

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.

                                                

Red and Green Grapes. Excessive heat is curtailing harvest.

 

Blackberries and Raspberries. Very limited availability. The California crop is gapping in supply; we may not see large increases until August.

 

Pears. California will start packing Bartlett pears next week.

 

Lemons. Demand exceeds supply due to summertime demand and lighter production as a result of the drought in California. Expect lighter supplies though the summer and into the fall.

 

For more updates on commodities:

  
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. 
 
Blueberries, Cabbage, Cucumbers, Peppers, and Squash are now available!
  
  
Jersey Fresh Forecast:
Tomatoes and Corn- Later planting will result in a later harvest. Large volumes won't be available until mid-July.
Peaches- The season will be delayed; yellow peaches will be early to mid-July and white peaches will be late-July.

Cantaloupes and honeydews

get boring...
