Markets are elevated; industry volume is down as domestic crops out of Washington, Michigan, South Carolina, and others have been fully depleted.


  • Central Mexico and Southern Baja are the primary growing regions
    • Full production out of Central Mexico is expected slightly later than normal (late July)
    • Northern Baja (regarded as a premium asparagus growing region) will begin to open fields in 14-21 days, easing supply pressure somewhat


  • Peru’s volume is increasing week over week but remains lower than normal due to:
    • Inclement weather
    • Weak spring demand reduced incentives to open more fields
  • Expect pricing to remain elevated through July until overlapping growing regions create abundant supplies
