UPDATE: Rising Tomato Prices

March 07, 2019

Roma and round tomato prices are climbing; stocks are limited. 

  • Mexico is the primary growing region; supplies are crossing into Nogales, Arizona and South Texas
  • Tight stocks are expected for the next two weeks
    • Mexican production is below-normal due to cold weather and transitioning crops
    • Florida supplies are low this time of year; growers do not plant as much because Mexican volume is typically high during the month of March
  • Prices are escalating for all sizes
