After seeing a slight spike in the BROCCOLI market, we will see an adjustment in pricing next week. Better supplies out of Santa Maria and Salinas, coupled with the desert production will make for plenty of broccoli supplies.
Steady supplies from Florida expected to increase. Prices on Savoy slightly higher, others generally unchanged. 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 demand is moderate. The quality and condition have been good. Supplies are better and markets are slightly lower. Look for deals on 9s and 16s through next week.
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 of GREEN leaf are available out of the desert, but numbers are starting to diminish. Next week we will see the harvest of green leaf out of Huron, and supplies will start out of Santa Maria.
We are getting close to finishing up the desert season. We saw the market increase this week with ICEBERG lettuce. With the country starting to open up, demand is starting to increase. Supplies out of the desert will start to diminish and we could see the market become stable through next week. New crop is starting harvest out of Huron.
No change with the RED leaf situation. There are still plenty of supplies being harvested out of the desert. Also, new crop out of Huron will become available next week.
As the Iceberg lettuce market increased this week, so did the ROMAINE market. The addition of new crops being harvested out of Huron next week will build supplies and help adjust the market.
