UPDATE: Green Leaf, Iceberg, Romaine, Broccoli, and Cauliflower

November 01, 2019

Green leaf, iceberg, romaine, broccoli, and cauliflower supplies will be limited next week; expect prices to climb.

  • Plant growth in California’s Salinas and Santa Maria Valleys remains ahead of schedule; inconsistent weather patterns over the past 60 days have caused irregular maturity rates and reduced yields  
  • Harvesting is winding down in the Salinas Valley, leaving California’s Central Valley and the Yuma, Arizona desert region as the primary growing regions over the next few weeks; cooler-than-normal weather in Yuma area has delayed production
  • Expect volatile prices through November
