Market Update

Local Farms: Western Washington had a unusually rainy June which has not only damaged crops but pushed back planting/harvesting for the remainder of the season.  This is the first week of good weather temp/sunwise that we’ll see volumes start picking back up mid August. 

Pineapple: We are seeing steady supplies with good quality which is making the market firm up a bit. 

Strawberries: The strawberry market is very short due to high demand and warm growing area temperatures. 

Citrus (Lemons): The lemon markets is active and firm on fancy grade. Choice market is still looking steady. More supplies will be available out of the Oxnard/Ventura area. 

Potatoes: There is a limited supplies of 40 CT – 70 CT on the market. USDA box demand has tightened up availability on non-a sized russets. New crop will be available in early August.
