Asparagus prices will climb over the next several weeks. Limited supplies in Mexico and Peru and strong holiday demand will keep prices elevated into early January.
- Markon First Crop Asparagus is sporadic, but will start to increase in mid-December
- Mexican supplies are extremely tight; growers are transitioning from the Baja Peninsula to mainland regions for the winter season
- Demand is strong; Peruvian stocks will fill orders until Mexican production increases in early January
- Expect elevated prices until overall volume increases
