There is very little change with the Broccoli market. While the Desert season is finishing, supplies of BROCCOLI from Santa Maria and Salinas continue to increase. There will be no transition gap spike, coming off of a Holiday Weekend, the business will be down next week.
Steady supplies from Florida expected to decrease. Prices are lower. Quality is generally good.
The carrot market continues steadily into the Easter holiday. Growers are seeing better supplies of Jumbo and cello size which has stabilized the market. Demand for snack carrots though still is strong with recommended advance ordering it’s still the way to go. Shippers appear to have caught up with most of the baby demand and improving supplies should continue.
Cauliflower demand is steady. Plenty of Flower around Salinas, Santa Maria & Yuma is still going in a light way. Markets are steady & there have been deals on 9s and 16s.
Market steady great quality. Transition to Oxnard has not affected Celery supplies as much as other row crops this month. Expect the market to remain steady through the end of the month.
Market steady/Green onions are now in summer plantings which means fewer volumes as local deals kick off regionally. Fair quality as Mexico heats up.
Desert season is finished. Hot temperatures in the Desert will put an end to the season. Santa Maria/Oxnard has started, and Salinas will start next week.
The Desert season has come to an end. With temperatures in the upper 90’s to 100 degrees in Yuma, what fields are left are starting to burn up. Huron will continue for a couple of weeks, and Salinas will start in a limited way in the next 7 days. There will be no transition gap spike in the market.
The Desert season is finished. 95-100 degree temperature in Yuma will put an end to the leaf season. Saliinas will start next week.
Like the rest of the Desert season, high temperatures and low markets will mean an end to the leaf lettuce program. Santa Maria/Oxnard, Huron, and Salinas will all be producing Romane next week.
