Market Update

Tomatoes: The tomato market is still short with prices remaining high. Roma tomatoes are probably the best value during this shortage.

Leaf Lettuce: We are seeing better quality on leaf lettuce out of Yuma. 

Arugula: The market for arugula is remaining short due to poor quality in the growing regions. 

Citrus: Satsumas are just about done with most folks loading page tangerines. 

Berries: There is hail in the blackberry growing region of Mexico. This will most likely result in a gap in supply over the next couple of weeks. 

Potatoes: The recent cold weather and freezes have impacted the potato supply from Washington and Idaho. The markets are climbing and expect to keep rising as we move into storage. Supplies are estimated to be down 30%. 

Green Onions: We are seeing green onions in very short supply which is causing the market to become increasingly more expensive. 

Melons: Mini seedless melons are tough to come by, which is resulting in good quality melons becoming even tougher to find. Organic melons seem non-existent right now.
