MARKET ALERT!

We are experiencing several challenges related to this year’s transition from winter to summer crop between Yuma and Salinas Valley.  Extremely hot weather in Yuma has caused growers to lose substantial amounts of their crop.  An earlier than normal transition back to Salinas Valley was planned due to the heat in Yuma, but cold wet weather in Salinas has resulted in delayed harvests.

Please expect fair quality, short shelf life, limited supply, and extreme markets if you purchase the following items:

  • Boston Lettuce
  • Broccoli
  • Broccoli Rabe
  • Broccolini
  • Cauliflower
  • Green Leaf Lettuce
  • Iceberg Lettuce
  • Red Leaf Lettuce
  • Romaine Lettuce & Hearts

FEATURED PRODUCTS

Peas Fresh Native CompressedFresh Peas

 Feels like spring today!  Fresh peas are in and more spring veggies are close behind. They are sold by the 10# case or by the pound.  Other great options to avoid the above extreme market crops are Mesclun lettuce, asparagus, green beans, summer squash, and zucchini.
