Happy New Year! Each year as I replace the old calendars on the walls in my office, I reflect on twelve months that just sailed by. It seems these most recent months passed slightly faster than the previous twelve, a feeling I am certain will repeat next year.

The year 2012 was one the most exciting years for produce I have seen! It was full of new and exclusive items that brought some of our produce categories to a whole new level. What’s so wonderfully fun about these items is they brought a little seasonality back to the produce department.

For me there are very strong ties between the current weather and seasons of fresh produce. The other day I was crossing the Mendota Bridge and it hit me - I’m not sure if it was the crispness of the air outside, but it suddenly felt like fall and it brought a smile to my face thinking of the delicious foods to come.

There are a number of produce items people associate with fall. Apples and squash are probably at the top of many autumn shopping list, but what I really want you to think about in the coming weeks and months are grapes.
