Produce Notes: April 10, 2019

The transition from winter to summer crops is one of the most difficult times to be sourcing produce, even in California. And this year has proved to be even more challenging with a wetter than usual winter. Weather combined with increased consumer demand has driven up prices and lowered supply - what we’re still seeing with celery. Mexico produce is generally strong and our go-to during these seasonal gaps, but border closures have complicated things even further.

Rest assured, we’re moving to the bright side and not only will you start to see more summer veggies and fruits, you’ll notice that we’re getting back to the majority of it being local!


California blueberries are here and looking gorgeous. Though blackberries are gapping due to lower production yields, we were able to scoop up some gorgeous ones and add them to our Fresh Deals again this week.

 

Though off to a slow start, sugar snap peas are in steady supply. Sugar snap peas are a group of edible podded peas that were developed by breeding a Chinese snow pea with a mutant pea plant. The end result is a snappy sweet pea with thicker walls and plump pods. English peas are in tight supply due to decreased production and sharp increase in demand, but we hope to have them later this week.


Organic yellow corn from Mexico has arrived - a good sign that California crops are not far behind. Pear supplies are steady from Washington and Oregon, with D’Anjou glowing and worthy of a spotlight on this week’s Fresh Deals. D’Anjous are perfect for snacking, baking or adding into salads.


Looking forward, we see sweet red seedless grapes, apricots and cherry season on the horizon. Word is rhubarb is coming later in the season this year, but we’ll be the first to bring it in - only when ready.
