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.
Steady supplies from Florida. Prices are lower. Quality is generally good.
The carrot market is steady. Growers are seeing better supplies of Jumbo and cello size which has stabilized the market. Demand for snack carrots continues strong and advance ordering is still the way to go. Shippers appear to have caught up with most of the demand and improving supplies should continue.
Cauliflower demand is good. Supplies have been light. Salinas has started in a light way. Market has been higher due to not much volume but we are hoping with Salinas starting there will be better volume by the end of next week.
Market steady with great quality at the moment. Yuma region is coming to an end so Oxnard will be the primary ship point. Suppliers are expecting the market to improve as we head into transition.
Market steady with nice quality. Great Mexican growing conditions have brought on an abundance of supplies. Growers are expecting the market to firm up as we head into the Easter push.
Like the red leaf, GREEN leaf supplies are abundant. We should not see a change in the market next week.
These past couple of weeks we have witnessed the lowest ICEBERG LETTUCE market in years. A freeze throughout the country and ideal growing conditions have built inventories throughout the desert. It will take a while to fill the pipeline up. So look for and another week of low markets.
Optimum growing conditions in the desert continue to bring on supplies of the RED leaf. Depressed market into next week.
As the country starts to thaw, the supplies of ROMAINE continue to grow. Perfect growing conditions in the desert are bringing on plenty of Romaine and Romaine Hearts. This market will also not change next week.
