MARKET REPORT – OCT. 26TH, 2018

So………we will start out with this:

Isn’t this what we’ve been telling our customers for decades?  You spray food with chemicals our body doesn’t know what to do with, so it stores them up for a rainy day, and something bad will happen.  Unfortunately it takes years /decades to turn that hypothesis (and common sense) into provable science.

MARKET REPORT – Jan. 13th, 2017 – So great news about the drought!

So great news about the drought – of course, but none of our California imports come from Northern California, and those recent huge volumes of rain and snow did little for southern California, hence the bottom ½ of the state is still bright red in the map above.  Winter isn’t over.  There’s hope for more rain for soCal where it’s really needed.

MARKET REPORT – DEC. 23RD, 2016

Have a great holiday – make Brussels Sprouts great again.

Here’s hoping, for those of you in the retail trade, that you are raced off your feet!  The Holiday season turns on strongly held traditions, and although we have commercialized the heck out of it, it really comes down to sharing, smiling and celebrating friends and family with great food.  Everything isn’t the same as when I was a kid.  Stores used to close at 3:00 on Christmas Eve and not open again until the 27th or 28th.  Boxing Days were illegal, at least in Vancouver, until the mid-80’s.  People didn’t shop for Christmas presents on the 26th and delay the family get-together until Boxing Day night so they could buy presents cheaper.  All presents came with batteries.  People went to church on Christmas morning before racing home to stuff the turkey.  But that’s about it – I think the rest is about the same, and for most families, it is getting together to celebrate a holiday, whether it’s Christmas or the holiday of any other religion, and eat, drink and not answer work emails, at least for the day.
