The autumn season arrived this week and the local market is definitely showing it.
Ontario grown apples and pears are abundant. Winter vegetables are available and
prices are dropping with each passing week. You’ll notice prices easing up on all beets,
cabbage, carrots, onions, and hard squash. Potatoes are the exception because the season
is way behind and we haven’t seen any real volume with the new crops as of yet. There’s
still plenty of locally grown summer fruit and vegetables available – check the list below!
NEED TO KNOW
A gap in the supply of local English cucumbers has sent prices higher over the last couple
of weeks and this will continue through this week. Local lettuce is finishing for the season
so prices are firmer on all varieties because we don’t have the cheaper options available
that average the prices lower. Both raspberry and strawberry prices are higher due to
the extreme heat in the growing areas. Pineapples and watermelons are cheap!
Beets, carrots, green/yellow beans, ALL peppers, grape tomatoes are much cheaper
then round cherry tomatoes, plum tomatoes and both green/yellow zucchini. In fruit
use blackberries, cantaloupes, figs, honeydews, mangos, pineapples, and watermelons.
