The softer the berry the sweeter the taste! The fuzz-free exterior makes it easy to pop this berry-like fruit into your mouth as a quick and delicious snack. About the size of a grape, kiwi berries are a small variety of kiwi fruit that have a smooth, edible skin.

  • 22378 Red A Potatoes 50#
  • 224285 Yellow A Potatoes 50#

Coming to us local  from Double N Potatoes. Since about 1938, the Nelson family has been producing superior quality potatoes from Northwest Washington. The Nelson farming and packing operations do not take any shortcuts that may affect the main objective — a premium quality fresh potato delivered to the marketplace. 

  • 28671 Sweetie Apples 50/60/70ct

This apple originated as a seedling from ‘Royal Gala’ × ‘Braeburn’, that ripens slightly before ‘Royal Gala’. The Sweetie offers a sweet flavor with mild spice-like undertones. It has a juicy, yellow flesh and a firm and crisp texture, like its Braeburn parent.

  • 21841 Indian Corn 50ct 

Soooooo festive!! A fall favorite for seasonal decor. Despite its tough exterior, this type of corn can be consumed by livestock and humans, and is used in such dishes as hominy and polenta.

  • 20370 Organic Purple Sprouting Broccoli 18ct

This untidy-looking, colourful cousin of broccoli can be used in much the same way. Leafier and deeper in colour than calabrese, it adds vibrancy and crunch to vegetable dishes.

  • 27557 Tiger Stripe Pumpkins 32/36ct

Most commonly found as decorative centerpieces. It contains little flesh, but it’s edible and perfect as a soup bowl or stuffed and baked. Even if you don’t eat the whole thing, they’re perfect for table-top food displays and vessels for dips and soups.

  • 29308 Honeycrisp Apple Cider 4/1gal

Can’t beat Ryan’s! A mouth-watering and refreshing juice blended from the Northwest’s premium sweet and tart apple varieties.

  • 26639 Yellowfoot Mushrooms Special order ( 3lb. minimum)
  • 28498 Lobster Mushroom Special order ( 3lb. minimum)

Yellow Foot chanterelles are popularly sautéed in butter and spices and served as a stand-alone side dish, stuffed into pasta, layered in a roast beef sandwich, or are served with lightly flavored vegetable dishes, meats, and soups. 

Lobster mushrooms can be highly variable in their flavor characteristics. Clean young specimens will often have a seafood odor when you cook them that is a natural with lobster, crab, or other seafood. When sautéing or pan frying, it creates a lobster colored orange juice in the pan that can make your dish more festive and lobster-like.

Market Update

California update: The Salinas Valley has seen excessive heat well above 100, then came the fires. All row crops are and will be significantly impacted. We will see reduced yields, discoloration, insect pressure, just to name a few issues.

Strawberries: Lower yields and damaged fruit has caused markets to tighten up drastically. Cooler weather and smoke are also slowing production as well.

Sumos: The fruit is out there, however the packouts have yielded losses of around 25% from the first container.  Quality is fair at best on these. TBA when arriving.

Lemons: There is a steady supply coming from the Coastal District.  Markets are active and firm on FCY, CHC is steady.  Import fruit is clean and available if needed.

Green Grapes –The market is steady and the fruit is plentiful. Good availability for the balance of the month. Overall quality has been consistent, good color and brix/sugar levels.
