There are still supplies being harvested out of the Desert for another week or two. Santa Maria and Salinas are in full production with plenty of supplies. Another depressed market.
Steady supplies from Florida expected to increase. Prices are higher. 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 is still plentiful. Lots of deals on 9s & 16s. Quality & condition has been good. Demand is just fair. Markets look to stay lower through next week with all areas with flower.
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.
Supplies continue to increase with GREEN leaf. There are still a few fields left in the Desert. But most supplies are being harvested out of Santa Maria and Salinas. The early quality looks good and supplies will continue to build.
There are still a few fields left in the Desert, but for the record, we are finished South. Supplies continue to come from Huron for another week, and Santa Maria / Salinas harvest has begun. No transition gap and No market change.
The Desert is finished and Salinas will get started with more supplies next week. No change in the market, still very depressed.
Of all the leaf items, the ROMAINE market appears to have a little life. With the Desert finished, the cooler temperatures in Santa Maria and Salinas have hindered the grown of Romaine and Romaine hearts. A slightly better market than the other leaf items.
