Market Update

Avocados: Quality and oil content will be at the peak of the season and the market will stay active as we go into the Superbowl. 

Lettuce: We are seeing light weight, and quality as an issue do to the cooler temps in the growing areas. This has resulted in low production of most green leaf items. 

Green Onions: These are slow to grow due to the cold weather which is creating a demand exceeding supply situation.

Citrus: Cooler weather and rain has hit some citrus fields which has increased levels of mold and decay.

Berries: Strawberries and raspberries are still in short supply.
