UPDATE: Declining Red Bell Pepper Prices

March 21, 2019

Red bell pepper prices are much lower; overall supplies have increased compared to two weeks ago. Mexico is the primary growing region with the bulk of supplies crossing into Nogales, Arizona.

  • Temperatures in Mexico are back to normal levels, increasing the maturity of red bell peppers
    • Yields have increased
    • Supplies crossing into the U.S. are up
  • Prices will continue to ease over the next two weeks (barring any major weather events)
  • Markon recommends keeping tight inventory to avoid holding high-priced product
