Here is a quick overview of this coming week in the fruit and vegetable markets. You should expect:

 

Apples: Large Granny Smiths are still limited in Washington.

Blackberries: Supplies are limited. Domestic quality is fair.

Blueberries: Supplies remain limited this week.

Cucumbers: There is a wide range of quality along with good lots so maneuvering around to get good quality can be tricky.
