UPDATE: ASPARAGUS

December 15, 2021

The asparagus market is elevated due to strong demand and limited supplies.

  • Markon First Crop Asparagus is available
  • Demand is up as the holiday pull continues
  • Constitution is currently primary growing region in Mexico
    • Caborca production has started in a light way but will not yield significant volume until mid-January; the season will run through April
    • The Mexicali harvest is scheduled to begin in late December and run through late January
  • Peruvian volume is steady (into Miami, Florida)
  • Expect higher prices for the next 10-14 days until holiday demand subsides and Mexicali production begins
