NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) – Organic and cage free eggs are becoming popular to the point that that some major grocery chains are reporting shortages.
A New Jersey ShopRite recently posted a sign saying the short supply was industry-wide and was due to increased demand and limited availability.
A Colorado blogger also snapped a picture in a Safeway store referencing a nationwide shortage of specialty and organic eggs.
And it seems supplies certain kinds of organic produce may also be temporarily limited.
Jon Steffy, of Organicproducegeek.com says demand during diet season, which he calls “resolution season”, is amplified.
“So I think we notice it more as demand continues to grow for wholesome organic food,” he said.
He also said organic cucumbers are one of a number of items that are harder to find right now.
Since Christmas, cucumbers supplies from Florida have almost ground to a halt and the Mexican supply is coming but it’s just not ready yet.
And as the basic theory of economics goes, less supply drives up prices.
Take organic berries for example:
There was a strawberry shortage a couple weeks back and prices spiked
Experts say the primary reasons for the shortages are weather and demand.
So if your favorite organic produce is in short demand right now, some good bets for availability and decent prices are winter squash and dark leafy greens.
