Much like most of the vegetables being harvested out of Salinas, the Broccoli market is depressed. With the MidWest, East Coast and Canada producing Broccoli, this market can only go up. No hope for the month of July.
Moderate supplies from Michigan and Virginia. Prices are lower. Quality is generally 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.
Quality and condition have been good. Supplies are plentiful with deals on 16s and 9s. Markets look to be flat through the next week.
The market feels a bit softer as Michigan and other local deals will start. No real issues to report at the moment, quality overall is excellent.
The market feels a bit softer as local green onions deals have started in other regions. Fair quality being reported out of Mexico, steady pricing.
Limiting summer plantings and low demand have made for a depressed market. Don’t see a change until after the month of July.
The Iceberg Lettuce demand is depressing. We have limited plantings, but with COVID keeping Restaurants shut down, even the limited availability can’t keep the market up. Don’t see any change for next week.
Experiencing very low demand for the Red Leaf. Most growers planned for this by planting limited acreage during the month of July.
Summer plantings were down for the month of July, but demand for processed Romaine (bagged salads) remains steady and the Gov’t Box Program (Romaine hearts) remains up. This market is good and should remain up through the month.
