Pamela wonders about the other elephant in the room that could affect fresh produce sales at retail -- will consumers trust farmers markets during COVID-19?
For six months out of the year, basically from April to November, it's springtime in the strawberry fields.
The back-and-forth of Amazon Prime grocery and Amazon Fresh contraction and expansion over the past three years has been a puzzler for me. Amazon is an e-commerce company. They bought a grocery store. Why was this not a better marriage?
We’ve all got nowhere to go. Might as well eat our oranges in the shower. It’s a fun change of pace when days are blending together.
What does that mean for impulse sales, particularly in fruit?
Have you ever been so hungry that the first thing you ate is the best thing you can remember eating? I'm seeing if I can recreate that experience with lettuce from lēf Farms.
With most Americans spending more time at home, and in the kitchen, I thought it would be a great time to try some less-familiar produce items in my "quarantine kitchen."
From tonic water to hand sanitizer and toilet paper, consumers are stocking up on a wide array of things during this pandemic. There’s one, at least, benefitting the fresh produce industry.
I understand that a lot of categories, like canned vegetables, flour, bread, eggs, and meat, are unpredictable and setting ads has to be a nightmare.
If we want to continue to grow fresh produce sales online, we have to have a better online presence than this.
