Apple season: are prices up?
Radio-Canada reported recently that the early spring weather has pushed up apple prices. Noticed at the market yesterday that, while there’s usually a uniform price for all the local varieties, my favourite – the Cortland – is now a little more expensive than the McIntosh, Lobo and Spartan.
At the stall where I bought apples, the woman told me they don’t produce as many Cortlands because they’re less popular now, which makes me sad – they’re the best apples in Quebec. Or do you have another opinion?
