There were seven distributors in the New England Prouce Center who were without power , phones or internet for Tuesday and Wednesday after the storm came through. Coosemans Boston was one of them.

Rumors from the field indicate some produce buyers are leaving NJ, but in surveying our greater Vineland farms, our greens, lettuces and herbs escaped unscathed, except for a few fields of baby greens that were just too small and tender to stand the winds. Not to worry! There's a lot of quality Jersey Fresh produce still available and the harvest will continue until we get a hard frost or heavy snow.
