From last year:

Fewer California asparagus growers are in business these days.  The Victoria Island asparagus, which we’ve loved and carried for years, is gone.  It’s gone because cheaper asparagus, from Mexico and Chile, are taking over.  The main driver of this trend are the big-box grocery stores, who favor price over quality while trying to appease a year-round demand for what used to be a seasonal product. 

And now:  all of the above is still true, and unfortunately, we’re seeing this trend spread to Stockton, CA, where the best of the (non-local) asparagus comes from.  It’s slow to start this year, and fewer farmers out there are growing it, and it’s uncertain when we’ll see it.  Stay tuned.
