MARKET REPORT – JULY 7, 2017

Thanks for supporting us back then, eh!

When Annie and I started Discovery back in the last millennium we only sold local (BC) organic fruit and veg – for many years.  You can imagine that in the spring months, we really had very little to sell, and if it wasn’t for many retailers (maybe even you) who would struggle to meet our shipping minimums with a very short price list, we wouldn’t be around.  It wasn’t embarrassing because we were doing our best, but a price list in April might have only had 2 varieties of apples, a few potatoes and a straggle of other root crops, plus mushrooms and sprouts.

HOT SHOTS – JULY 24TH, 2016

Dear Ones, 

The Hot Shots may not churn out like clockwork over the few weeks we have between now and school starting, only due to all of us moving our schedules and tasks around so that everyone gets time off to bask in the sun.

MARKET REPORT – JULY 15TH, 2016

Well there you go – up to date with mostly great news!

Here’s a few notes of interest this week.

Apricots are winding down quickly after a short selling window and lower yield over-all this year – we may squeak out another 2 weeks, but that’s all.

Bananas – all these damn inspections have left us with a gap on FT bananas looming for early next week with our next container expected to be released mid-week and ripened fruit by Friday.  We will have bananas and will be subbing with GROW bananas for those few days.

MARKET REPORT – JULY 1ST 2016

From the top (on what is mostly a fruit report).

First picks of BC Dessert Apples start this weekend.  The first few varieties don’t have much volume behind them – those would include Vista Bella, Sumac, Discovery, Tydemann, Transparent and a few more.  These are called dessert apples because they make great pies – lots of flesh with lower juice content.  They also have a very short shelf life – usually just a couple of weeks.  But always nice to have local apples, especially this early in the year.  Early season eating apples (Earligold and Sunrise are still a long way off.)  We should see some California Gala in the next 10 days as well.

HOT SHOTS – JUNE 5TH, 2016

Dear Ones, 

This week I’ve had lots of moments to truly cherish the people who live above me, due to the incredible fortune of having found a new place to live that is just the cutest apartment you’ve ever seen.  I know some of you don’t live in Vancouver, but those of you who do, you know or have heard that for tenants in this town, it’s rough out there!  That’s why I ended up where I am, because it was above ground and had no carpet and had big windows……etc.
