ALERT! Blueberries:   
Blueberry supplies are still extremely limited, exceeding demand. Domestic production is not coming on quick enough to avoid a supply gap. This current shortage is expected for another 2 weeks.
Some growing regions such as Phoenix and Yuma have finished. And most suppliers are feeling increased demand. Supplies in the remaining regions are steady. But the increased demand and possible supplies gapping by the end of this week have created an upward trend in the market. Quality remains excellent with nice crown size with limited yellowing.
ALERT! Brussels Sprouts: 
Brussels Sprouts continue to be a problem. Not only are supplies extremely limited, prices are extremely high as well. Quality is fair at best with arrivals showing brown discoloration and some black decay. Unfortunately there still isn't any forecast for relief.
There are plenty of supplies from all growing regions. The market remains steady even through transition. Quality has been excellent with nice green color, minimal dehydration, and yellowing.
Stone Fruits:
The domestic stone fruit season is kicking off over the next few weeks with peaches, apricots and nectarines starting around the 20'th of April. Early indications are for excellent fruit with a good range of sizes. The Chilean deal is essentially done with a few shippers still cleaning up
some inventory.

Locally Sourced Outlook
Our local farmers are beginning to start their planting. Here is how spring is shaping up.

Jersey Asparagus will be available mid-April through June!

Early May: 
We will have locally grown and packed greens from Dan Graiff Farms in Newfield, New Jersey ("Five Star" brand)-- Baby Arugula, Baby Spinach, Baby Kale, and Spring Mix! Hard work, quality product, and consistency are the three ingredients for success at Five Star. Every leaf is inspected three times before it is packed and shipped under the Five Star label. They are fastidious in their desire to make sure every item is of the finest quality, uniform in size, fresh, packed, and stored at the optimum temperature.
Locally grown greens will become available from New Jersey growers-- Escarole, Romaine, Leaf Lettuce, Bok Choy and more!
