UPDATE: Celery

December 04, 2015


The celery market continues to rise due to tight supplies and strong holiday demand.

  • Prices are rising into the low $30.00 range
  • Supplies remain limited even though California growers are harvesting in Coachella, Oxnard, Salinas, and Santa Maria
  • Cold weather has slowed maturity; quality issues are affecting yields  
  • Large sizes are extremely tight, especially 24-count celery; 36-count and smaller sizes are more plentiful
  • Florida growers will begin harvesting by mid-December, weakening demand for West Coast supplies
  • Expect high prices for the month of December as demand will remain strong
  • 100% of Ready-Set-Serve Celery orders are being filled at this time
