MARKET REPORT – FEB. 17TH, 2017

Talk about ending the drought! 

Let’s start off with this message this morning from Coke Farms in San Juan Batista (2 hours south of San Francisco and ½ an hour away from the Salinas Valley.)

“Have a quick moment of electricity to write this email.  We are experiencing INSANE wind and weather here today.  Like we have never seen!   Expect that you may not receive your orders until Monday at best.  Trees are down everywhere, roads and highways are closed and power is out in many places.  Some employees not able to get here and working conditions outside are dangerous.  Even if we get orders built hard to say if trucks will be able to get to us on time etc.  Please be patient as we sort this out.”

MARKET REPORT – DEC. 16TH, 2016

Do we really need pink pineapple? Whatever.

As we wind up to Christmas week, here’s a fast discussion about what to look forward to, and not.

Apples – little has changed, with a wide selection and fair pricing.  Expect to see a few varieties move south of the border over January, and CA rooms breaking here, with CA Gala already packing.

MARKET REPORT – MAY 14TH 2016

A great line-up of FT product for the last two weeks of May!

Here’s a run through of changes we’re seeing for the upcoming week:

Apples – pricing continues very high.  We are trying to pull as much CA Fuji as possible – and aiming for the WAXFPREM grade – stunning fruit, although the priciest in the market.  Not sure when this situation will change – really all depends on supply and demand through the summer.  Remember, though, we’re just 8 weeks away from the first fresh BC Apples!
