no Basmati rice at Assi Market

Dh stopped by Assi last night to pick up our usual 20lb bag of rice. we alternate between basmati and jasmine depending really on which he grabs first. <grin> he came home with jasmine, saying that there was absolutely no basmati to be had in the store just signs saying it's out of stock.

Have you seen this at other markets? Did I miss some rice growing crisis or is this just a one off situation. (I'm not sure how the crisis in Japan has affected rice production)
