During this difficult time, we at Pacific Coast Fruit Company want to continue to provide our community with the freshest produce while minimizing the amount of physical contact. We pack these boxes fresh daily in our SQF Level 2 food-safe facility and deliver them straight to a number of pick up locations across the greater Portland area.

We are now offering a way for the community to get fresh produce from farm to family while still practicing social distancing with the creation of our very first direct to consumer box program!

Consumers can now visit www.pcfruit.com/produceboxes/ to order fruit, vegetable, dairy, or snack boxes for curbside pick-up at their desired pick up date and location.

To buy in bulk and be able to distribute to your own community of people please give us a call at (800) 461 3788.

Produce Market Update

Onions: Organic red and yellows are oversold, due to heavy retail demand.  We will see higher markets going into next week.  Organic white onions are gapping.

Grapes: We are into our Pristine Green Grape supply! These are crisp and crunchy and sweet. Maybe the best grape we see all year on the greens. Most other import greens have stopped, so regardless of the higher price tag, this is a good buy! 

Garlic: Shippers have implemented a companywide par on fresh garlic packs.  We are being held to a 6-week average par, but also subject to prorates.  The new crop season will not start until June/July. The organic season is done for the year, and will also restart with new crop in June. 

Tomatoes: Tomatoes have gotten very cheap. Growers are backed up due to favorable growing weather and lack of food service demand. 

Melons: Cantaloupes are somewhat active because Guatemala is nearing the end and the new crops in Mexico and the US will be on the way soon.  Watermelon is the question mark.  Looks like some deals out there next week but the quality on those deals might be suspect. 

Broccoli/Cauliflower/Brussels: Items like Cauliflower and Brussels Sprouts are still in high demand due to arriving at store level pre-wrapped/pre-bagged. We are looking good on supply for contracts as well as open market needs.  

Potatoes: Most of the NW growers will finish next week on yellows and reds will go into mid-April. The market will increase next week due to limited growers remaining.  We will start to transition to a California new crop sometime in April. 

Apples: Honeycrisp apples are in high demand and shippers are struggling to keep up, as a result markets are moving higher, especially on organics. 

Berries: Supplies are steady and there are deals to be made with very little movement on strawberries.  Quality remains only fair after recent rain but should improve with better weather in the forecast. Supply remains tight on blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries out of Mexico but lack of sales are keeping markets steady to slightly lower.  California blueberries are about 2 weeks away. 

Citrus: Steady supplies and lower retail movement are easing markets slightly but production will steadily decrease as we get into April as the winter citrus crop comes to an end. We have deals available on volume orders.
