MARKET REPORT – DEC 8TH, 2017

As discussed on Wednesday, dire issues in California with un-fightable fires continuing to grow in size.

We haven’t heard from any growers, including Churchill Orchards who did let us know they were evacuating, but what we do know is that entire community of Ojai is circled by fire and everyone is gone.

MARKET REPORT – JUNE 6TH, 2017

Just a quick word to thank everyone so much for supporting an amazing year on our Agrofresco greens program for this 7 month season.  This operation is now our biggest vegetable vendor, and we’re planning on a few things to add to the program for next year.  One will be the final switchover to the “Ecocampos” labels for all products, and there will be other good news, to be announced in the future.

MARKET REPORT – FEB. 10TH, 2017

Even in a tragically over-supplied market…

It’s just another conversation today – will update you next week with any looming market changes. (Kind of boring writing market reports when there isn’t much news, other than a little rain down south.

MARKET REPORT – DEC. 30TH, 2016

Three things today:

1/ Happy New Year. As always we know 2 things are going to happen for 2017.  It will be better.  It always has to be better.  It’s going to be better. In whatever way that it is NOT currently better.   AND, sales will kick up substantially next week as all those New Year’s Resolutions to clean things up internally kick in.  AND maybe this year it won’t just be all about Kale!

PERU / ECUADOR – OCTOBER 2016

It had been two years since the last visit to the banana and mango coops we partner with, 2 years! time flies.

It felt good to be back to Lima and to the region of Piura in Northen Peru where bananas and mangos grow. In Ecuador, we visited ASOGUABO for the first time since we starting working with them, almost a year ago. Familiar faces but also new ones, good people, lots of smiles and the pleasure to shake the hands of coop members who work very hard to send us high quality products!

APROMALPI mangos, Chulucanas, Piura, Peru

During our last visit at APROMALPI, they were gearing up for what is announced as a very good year for Peruvian mangos! The winter temperatures have been cool enough for the trees to bloom appropriately which will lead to much better yields than last year where winter temperatures were too mild.
