In this interview, Joe Pulicicchio, Director of Produce and Floral for Town and Country Markets, begins by reminiscing about 2016, one of the best years ever for produce. 

But 2017, with its cooler temperatures and unprecedented rainfall, presents some significant challenges. Listen here as Joe discusses the difficulties posed by 2017’s first quarter weather patterns and describes what the current produce situation looks like.

It’s an excellent reminder that both the quality and quantity of the produce that will make it to our grocery shelves depend upon a delicate balance of weather and growing conditions.
