  • Citrus – Lemons & Oranges: sizing will be a challenge this season.
  • Sugar Snap Peas – The western market will be active for about 10 days due to gap in production.
  • Celery – Demand has softened and the market is coming down quickly; quality is good.
  • Tomatoes – Romas: demand far exceeds supply, quality remains good with the market on the rise.  REMINDER: Do NOT store tomatoes in the refrigerator, they lose their flavor and develop a mealy texture.
