Cucumbers remain short on both coasts of the US as transition and heat have impacted availability. Corn volume will continue to be light this week while tomatoes are ramping up out of North Carolina, Alabama, and Tennessee.
In the west we are seeing more volume out of the Central Valley and Baja on all tomato varieties. Corns, beans, peppers, and squash are all in transition to the valley.
Bananas will remain snug for the next 3-4 weeks; we do not expect shortages at this time.
ASPARAGUS – ESCALATED
The local asparagus season is coming to an end but other markets are turning online. The beginning of the Mexican and Peruvian season are in full swing but with sizing mainly being standard and large. This is being driven by colder weather as of late.
GREEN CABBAGE – ESCALATED
New crops are starting, expect leafy heads and less yield. Quick heads up that NTF coleslaw will be greener than usual for the next few weeks.
POTATOES – ESCALATED
The month ahead of us is looking to be tricky for all of us as we await new crops to be harvested and shipped out. We’re expecting a fair quality across all potatoe variaties to come.
Our famed onions buddies are busy growing… we wish we could just have them right now but they’re playing hard to get. As we wait we have been advised that all varieties getting harvested will be of fair to good quality.
