UPDATE: BROCCOLI AND CAULIFLOWER

July 22, 2022

Broccoli

  • Markon First Crop Broccoli is available
  • Supplies are increasing out of Central Mexico, as the season transitions north, to more elevated growing regions
  • Demand is shifting away from West Coast supplies, pushing markets down in the Salinas Valley
    • Supplies are steady
    • Quality is improving
  • Markets have fallen more than 35% off their end of June highs
  • Expect prices to remain lower in both areas over the next 15 to 30 days as local/regional production helps spread out demand

Cauliflower

  • Markon Essentials Cauliflower is available;
  • Salinas Valley volume is steady; demand ranges from fair to good
  • Expect markets to follow broccoli downwards, as quality issues like ricing, black spot, and inconsistent sized heads have become less prevalent
  • West Coast prices will remain low through July as local/regional harvesting helps decrease demand
