Warehouse walkthrough

  • 26237 Local Purple Brussels Sprouts 25#

These brussels are coming to us locally from Valley Pride Farms in Western Washington. They are a very good eating variety, a bit sweeter than greens and have great eye appeal. They would look very sharp next to the greens or even just on their own.

It has a soft and spreadable texture, a sweet aroma, and a combination of familiar flavors like umami, sweet molasses, a hint of balsamic, tamarind, and it’s even a little fruity like dates.

Market Update

Potatoes: Idaho has started shipping storage Nokotahs that have undergone the sweat process.  Harvest is complete which is 2 weeks ahead of schedule.

Pineapples: The strike is still ongoing in Costa Rica so arrivals are now delayed on both coasts.  We’ll keep staying ahead with updates. 

Çitrus: Valencia Orange supplies are winding down for the season.  88s and smaller are extremely limited.  Markets are active on both grades with quality being fair at best.

Cauliflower: Markets are inching up due to lower yields.  Califoria has been unusually hot and so it has been slowing some items down. 

Lettuces: The next few weeks will continue to be a challenge in California.  We are expecting quality to continue to show tip and fringe burn, pink ribbing, and light weight boxes.  Yuma is expected to begin the first to 2nd week of November.
