This week we witnessed very little demand for California Broccoli. This caused the market to reach down to single-digit prices. A lot of the country is being supplied by the Mid-West, East-Coast, and Canadian farmers. But, we just saw a tropical storm travel up throughout the East Coast, which will hinder production for a few days.
Steady supplies from Michigan and Virginia. Prices are generally unchanged. Quality is mostly good.
The conventional Carrot market is up, supplies expected to stay tight until mid-August limiting jumbo and cello availability. This demand is even starting to be felt on the baby. Although no change in markets here is expected.
Cauliflower demand has been fair. Quality and condition have been good. Shippers are saying lighter volumes through next week so markets might be a little better.
The market is steady, fair demand. Plenty of celery being offered great quality. Expect markets to remain steady.
The market is steady, fair demand. Mexican production is now slowing as volumes have dropped off. The local product is showing up very nice. Expect the green onion market to remain quiet throughout the summer.
Limited Summer plantings are still keeping Green Leaf supplies limited. The market, much like the Red Leaf market is depressed.
The Iceberg Lettuce market has seen better days. Last week we rode the wave of a good market, but like a wave, it came crashing down. Limiting demand throughout the country will keep this market depressed into next week.
The Red Leaf market is very depressed. Limited supplies, but nobody cares.
The Romaine market is the only Leaf market with any life. The limiting acreage planted continues to keep supplies down, but demand for the Bagged Salads and Romaine Hearts is keeping this market in double-digits.
