UPDATE: Celery Prices Continue to Rise

March 19, 2019

Supplies remain extremely limited; demand is strong. Prices will continue to rise. 

  • Overall acreage in the Arizona and California growing regions is below normal this season
  • Quality issues are further reducing yields
  • Demand will shift to Oxnard, California as the Arizona/California desert season winds down over the next two weeks and Florida production ends in mid-April
  • The Salinas Valley is on schedule to start in early June; stocks will increase at that time
  • Expect prices to remain elevated through June
