As many people are aware from the news, the past week has been extremely rough for produce supplies coming out of Mexico, as the aftermath of the freeze from late last week unfolds. Growers are trying to salvage as much product as possible, but quality and availability has become a major issue.
More important, we are seeing suppliers pro-rate product to us currently filling about 30% of the product ordered. We expect to continue to see tighter supply and the highest prices on this dwindling supply in 50 years. Current product in tight supply includes: celery, cucumbers, eggplant, lettuce, limes, green peppers, red peppers, zucchini, yellow squash, and tomatoes. We will continue to post listings of affected produce.
