Steady market with multiple regions now in production. Size peaking to standard/medium with jumbo lighter in supply.
Extremely light supplies. Expecting lighter numbers through the duration of this month and well into June before we see improved production.
Cabbage – Red & Green
Market active on very short supplies of red cabbage and demand exceeds supply. Desert has wrapped up and Salinas sizing is too small and not there yet.
Market has been dropping with good supply out there this week, and demand has been light.
Celery – Alert
Market very strong as Oxnard volume winds down with lower yields. Expect demand to exceed supplies for several more weeks.
Cilantro & Parsley
Market creeping up on curly parsley and a little more so on Italian parsley. Curly Parsley most growers are meeting demand, Italian parsley is struggling to meet the demand.
Green Beans – Alert
West Coast remains limited with the change in regions. It is expected to be roughly two weeks until we could see improved supply. East coast supplies a little better, market declining, expect better availability next week as more growers start up in Georgia.
Green and Red Leaf, Iceberg, and Romaine – Alert
Green and red leaf supplies have improved, and the market is reacting down with better volume.
Overall good supplies with very few supply disruptions. The market remains steady.
Market has been very active this week. Expect this to continue through the holiday weekend. More volumes coming out of New Mexico next week. Quality in California and New Mexico is excellent. These two areas are struggling to keep up with current demand.
Weather is applying pressure to west coast supply; market is on the increase. Quality reported hit and miss as desert color harvest starts. East – Green bells supply better, quality is good, and market a little lower. Red and yellow supplies is very short from Florida.
Supplies are very light at 40–50 ct and moderate at 60–70 ct. 80’s and smaller are seeing better volume. Quality remains good with steady pricing.
Market remains firm on moderate supplies on both snap and snow. Quality reported as good to very good.
Markets continue to escalate on all varieties due to lack of availability out of Florida due to the Ruskin/Palmetto growing region wrapping up. Markets will remain escalated for 2–3 weeks until crown picking starts out of North Florida / South Georgia.
