UPDATE: Asparagus

March 27, 2017

Due to the upcoming Easter holiday and fewer supplies on the market, demand is expected to increase over the next few weeks. Prices will rise.

  • Markon First Crop Asparagus will be available from Mexico through mid-April
  • Packer label shipments out of California have started in a limited way; expect MFC Asparagus out of California to hit the market in mid-April
  • The market will rise next week for the following reasons: 
    • The Mexican season is wrapping up early due to warmer-than-usual growing conditions
    • Fewer California plantings are in the ground
    • Easter demand will take effect next week 
    • Peruvian yields are low due to severe flooding
