I am guessing pricing at Ontario Fruit Markets is going to be higher than normal with less selection. I saw a tv report on this last night focussing on Niagara and cherry production but looks like the apples will be hit as well and probably other ontario fruit:

      Southwestern Ontario seems to be spared.

        Seems to be apple growers who took the biggest hit.

          And maybe grape growers too.

            Lake effect saved the bulk of the grape growers.
