Freezing temperatures in key growing regions of Mexico will limit broccoli, lettuce, and tomato supplies in the upcoming weeks. Expect rising prices.

  • Freezing temperatures cause bloom drop on tomato plants; supplies will be limited into December
    • Tighter supplies are expected for the next two to three weeks
    • California production has ended
    • The Florida season is getting a slow start
  • Although broccoli and lettuce supplies only supplement U.S. production, lower volume will contribute to overall tight stocks and higher-than-normal prices
