July 2, 2024

Limited supplies and strong Fourth of July holiday demand is driving the market higher. MFC Asparagus is available.


  • Production is slowly transitioning from Baja to Central Mexico; persistent heat stress has lowered yields by causing seeder and feathered tips, forcing growers to move to new fields sooner than scheduled
  • Tropical storm systems crossing over Central Mexico may lead to additional supply challenges next week
  • Sufficient supplies are expected in Central Mexico in August, but high prices and limited supplies are expected from mid- to late July

Other Regions

  • The Michigan and Canadian seasons have ended
  • Peruvian asparagus (shipped into Miami) remains available in the Eastern U.S.
    • Size is small amid cooler temperatures
    • Large, extra-large, and jumbo sizes are tight across all regions
