Organic cauliflower likely won’t be on your Thanksgiving table
Another shocking headline: Cauliflower in Short Supply for Thanksgiving. Ok, certainly not as terrible as last week’s headline about the amount of glyphosate showing up in our bodies, but as a vegetarian who adores cauliflower, this one is just a little sad.
And why do they say that if you can find an organic cauliflower in grocery stores during the holiday week (I’m not talking about your local farmers’ markets, btw) the price could be close to $40?! It’s due to the fact there will be higher demand, and that growers were transitioning from central California to more desert farms. Guess this is really one more reason to eat local, ehh?
On a brighter note, one of the sources in the story stated that due to higher demand in general, more acreage is being devoted to organic vegetable production — and that is always a good headline.
