Berry Market Alert




Due to the recent rains and this weekends high temperatures, we are seeing a significant drop in yields in our strawberry and blackberry production in Northern CA. We expect to see a shortage in supply and prices to rise. 

Blueberries are in a harvest gap with the Pacific NW being weeks behind schedule. Blueberries will be our toughest item for June. Prices will remain high and product is still very short in supply. 

Raspberries will be the least affected, as they are grown under hoops and at elevations where they have not been heavily impacted by heat.

As always, thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.    



Market Alert




Due to the recent erratic weather pattern in Salinas, rain and now a warmer weather, we are experiencing lower yields in our fields. As a result, growers are anticipating a small gap in supply on both iceberg and romaine products, as well as quality issues. We will be doing everything we can to work through these issues, however please know that you may see some slight shortages in product as well as escalated pricing.  At this time, we will be communicating strategically with everyone on a daily basis to keep you up to date and in the know as to whether this will impact you or not. 

As always, thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.
