UPDATE: BROCCOLI AND CAULIFLOWER

June 23, 2022

Broccoli

  • Markon First Crop Broccoli is available
  • Supplies are decreasing out of Central Mexico as the crop transitions to northern growing regions for the summer months
  • Demand is shifting to West Coast supplies to compensate, pushing up markets in the Salinas Valley where supplies and quality are steady
  • Expect prices to increase in both areas over the next 7-10 days until local/regional production starts for the summer

Cauliflower

  • Markon Essentials Cauliflower is available; packer label is being substituted as needed due to quality
  • Salinas Valley volume is steady; demand is strong
  • Expect markets to follow broccoli upwards due to the recent heat wave; oversized heads, bolting, leafy curds, and browning will become more prevalent, reducing yields
  • West Coast prices will continue inching up through early July until local/regional harvesting begins
