Rains in Central and Southern California continue to wreak havoc on head lettuces, frisee, baby vegetables, celery, broccoli rabe and most citrus. We’re doing everything in our power to keep these items in stock, but the situation is largely out of our control. Anticipate limited availability until fields dry out and planting schedules get back on track. But, it’s not all bad! Ramps should start out of Michigan over the next couple of weeks and the season’s first Harry’s Berries will be in house within ten days (fingers crossed).
Berries | Strawberries, Conventional: Poor weather has delayed the strawberry crops in Oxnard, CA. All berries are from Florida again this week and inventory will be tight. Strawberries, Organic: As supplies increase, the price for organic strawberries is fallen. Blueberries: Mexican product continues to be the best deal for both conventional and organic blueberries. Supplies will be plentiful with new arrivals incoming every day. Blackberries: Quality is still good and prices are dropping as supplies loosen up. Harry’s Berries: Due to rains in California, our first shipment was delayed again this week. We’re staying optimistic and expect an arrival within the next 10 days.
Lettuces | We will have limited supplies of red and green leaf, Romaine and Iceberg this week. In some happier news, we’re excited to introduce a new East Coast lettuce grower--our first shipment of arugula, spring mix and red/green leaf lettuce from Little Leaf Farms in Massachusetts arrived this week. Red watercress from B&W is back in stock.
Mushrooms | Gorgeous morels from China are still going this week. We’re also seeing the first Orchard morels out of California. Moroccan chanterelles are dry and medium-sized and availability is good. Black Trumpets, Hedgehogs and Yellowfoots are winter quality, but continue to be in steady supply. South African porcini are gapping.
