Spring Is Finally Here!
Great news for all of us produce lovers in the world. This is the time of year when new produce items are arriving regularly each week. Asparagus and strawberries have been available for some time now but toward the end of May they begin to peak in both availability and flavor. We are also seeing the beginning of stone fruit season. Peaches, Nectarines, Cherries and Plums begin to arrive, getting sweeter each week as warmer weather throughout California takes hold.
Also it is time to start looking for Grapes and assorted Melons along with Sweet Corn as they become sporadically available.
California Avocado season is now going strong but it did start late and is expected to end early. We expect prices to remain high this year as the crop estimates are 50% below last year's, due mainly to extreme heat that damaged the small fruit as it was setting last summer.
And finally we must mention our local farmers who have been hard at work for months now, at times in miserable weather in order to bring us the freshest foods available. The local organic produce harvest is just beginning and will continue throughout the spring and summer on in to fall.
So remember, here at Eureka Natural Foods, we are committed to bringing you the freshest, most delicious, organically grown produce available anywhere!
