Market Update

Posted on

Can you believe that it’s September already? Along with kids finally going back to school, September brings new and different things in the way of produce. The people at Pacific Produce have put together a Market Update, as you can see at the bottom of this post.

In summary, the unpredictable weather patterns over the past couple of months have affected our fruits and vegetables. A couple of significant changes in September’s seasonal produce include the early harvest of; corn, strawberries, red grapefruit, squash, apricots, cherries, carrot and yellow onions.

Eggs have taken a massive hit, too, since 48 million chickens were infected with Avian Flu Virus have had to be euthanized. As you can see on the Market Update, we are set to experience higher prices on eggs until early next year. Take note on how this affects your local brunch spot!

The good news is that it is the right time to go out and grab some peaches, nectarines, plums, cantaloupe, beans, melons, berries and tomatoes! Enjoy these while they last.
