UPDATE: BROCCOLI

March 24, 2022

Markets have been weak for the past several weeks, but are positioned to rise next week. Mexican-grown supplies are winding down sooner than expected, putting increased pressure on domestic growers. Markon First Crop Broccoli is available.

  • Demand for domestic broccoli is increasing
  • Salinas Valley new crop stocks are ramping up quickly due to warm weather
    • Supplies are adequate
    • Light rain is forecast for early next week, raising concerns for quality issues such as pin rot
  • Expect tighter supplies and higher prices through the end of seasonal transition (mid-April)

Please contact your Markon customer service representative for more information.
