Poor and wet weather in the south and east are directing buyers to look out west for broccoli supplies. As broccoli volumes drop and the demand increases, we are starting to see prices increase.
Moderate supplies from Michigan and Virginia. Prices are unchanged. Quality is generally good.
Carrot market steady with good supplies. Growers are seeing slightly lower supplies on conventional. Demand for snack and baby carrots continues strong and advanced ordering is highly suggested.
Cauliflower demand is moderate. Market is slightly higher. Still a wide range in quality & condition. Lots of deals on 9s & 16s.
Market slightly better, demand improving. Regional deals across the country are slowing down and bringing demand back west. Expect market to improve steadilythrough the month of September.
Market is still hot due to short supplies and hot temps. Supplies are improving and pricing should come back down to earth in the next couple of weeks.
As the Iceberg market advances, so is the Green Leaf market. Cooler nights, shorter daylight hours is slowing down production creating limited supplies. The market will not get too excited, but we will see a jump.
For the first time in 3 months we are seeing a market. A change in the weather, a Holiday pull and lower yields from the fields have created a situation where current supplies are not meeting overall demand. The market will advance again next week.
Much of the same as last week. Adequate supplies of RED leaf in the Salinas Valley will keep prices down.
With the Iceberg market moving up, interest for romaine continues to increase. There are some major problems with disease in the Romaine fields that is hindering production. Lower yields and increased demand will keep this market going up.
