Hoping you have an enjoyable holiday season! 

First of all, best of the season to all of you hard-working people in the produce world – hopefully you can walk away from the stress now.  Did I order enough broccoli?  Will we run out of Brussels sprouts?  What will I do with those 2 cases of cranberries I didn’t need, or the extra Poultry Spice clams?  Well, it’s pretty well too late now for many of you, so just let it go if you can.
