"We're going to see pricing definitely change and increase here from the present time through January and into February. It's going to be ugly and prices are going to rise on the California Vegetables," said Pat Miller of Russ Davis Wholesale
Pat told us even with a warm-up down south, it will take several weeks to get back to normal.
