UPDATE: BROCCOLI AND CAULIFLOWER

September 28, 2021

Broccoli and cauliflower prices continue to rise due to reduced supplies in multiple growing regions.

Broccoli

  • Markon First Crop (MFC) Broccoli is available
  • Expect prices to climb over the next 10 to 14 days as yields decrease
  • Overall quality is good: pin rot is occasionally affecting some lots
  • Demand is strong; markets are expected to maintain elevated levels over the next 10 to 14 days

Mexican Broccoli (Crossing into South Texas)

  • Supplies will be limited over the next 10 to 14 days due to high temperatures and sporadic showers
  • Demand for Mexican product is stronger due to low volume in other growing regions
  • South Texas broccoli is expected to be $2.00 to $3.00 cheaper than product from the West Coast

Cauliflower

  • Markon Essentials Cauliflower is available
  • Recent cool weather has slowed growth, resulting in fewer available supplies
  • Expect good quality with great color and ideal size
  • Elevated markets are forecast for the next 10 to 14 days
