Plenty if not too much is available out of Salinas and Santa Maria. This market is flooded with Broccoli. No change for at least 2 weeks.
Moderate supplies from Michigan and Virginia. Prices are unchanged. Quality is generally good.
Carrot market steady with good supplies. Growers are seeing better supplies of Jumbo and cello size in the fields which is a plus. Demand for snack carrots continues strong and advanced ordering is still the way to go.
Cauliflower demand is fairly light. Market is about steady. Still a wide range in quality & condition. Deals on 9s & 16s.
Demand steady, market flat. No real movement on the celery front. Good quality with plenty of volume throughout the industry.
Demand better, Market better. The extreme heat from 3-6 weeks back has taken a toll on the plants, for the next 3 weeks we will only harvest 3 days per week to let the plants recoup and size up. Once the temps get in excess of 115 the plant shuts down, it is its own defense mechanism to protect itself, problem is when it stops growing there will be a bit of a gap before it rebounds. Expect market to stay strong for the next month or so.
Good supplies will keep the market depressed. Quality remains good with large head size and heavy weights. We should not see much of a change until the first of the month.
Good demand will keep this market moving smartly. Continued Summer light plantings will limit supplies, but there are enough cartons available daily to keep this market on track.
Much of the same as last week. Adequate supplies in the Salinas Valley will keep prices down.
We continue to see better demand for Romaine and Romaine Hearts. Look for this trend to continue through the end of the month.
