An abundant amount of BROCCOLI is available from the desert up to Salinas. Mexican imports are also plentiful. We need the country to thaw out before the market will pick up.
Moderate supplies from Florida. Movement expected to increase due to the inclement weather in the Midwest. Prices generally unchanged. Quality is generally good.
The carrot market is steady. Growers are getting into better fields of conventional carrots so the Jumbo and cello market appear to have stabilized. Demand for snack carrots continues strong and advance ordering is suggested. Though plantings from Oct/ Nov are now starting to bear product and shippers appear to have caught up with most of the demand. Supplies should continue to improve over the next month.
Cauliflower quality and condition have been nice. Demand is fair. Markets look to be steady through next week with deals on 16s and 9s.
The market has calmed a bit as demand has dropped off. Bad weather across the country will eventually lower pricing significantly. Good quality overall
Plenty of green onions with great quality! Bad weather everywhere is backing growers up at the moment. Looking to make deals on green onions.
Plenty of GREEN leaf lettuce. A lack of demand coupled with build-up inventories has kept prices on the bottom. Quality is very nice.
With Extreme Winter weather covering most of the country, and optimum growing conditions in the desert, there is plenty of ICEBERG Lettuce. The market is very depressed and prices are on the bottom floor.
The RED leaf market, like all leafs being grown in the desert, is being hurt by the cold weather throughout the country. The lack of demand has kept prices low.
Like all the lettuce leaves, ROMAINE is not being spared the depressing markets brought on by the Cold Winter Weather throughout the country. Head size and weights are perfect right now. Quality is at a high level.
