  • Supplies from the Arizona and California desert region are showing better quality than late-season Salinas Valley and Santa Maria crops
  • Cooler weather, especially low nighttime temperatures, has slowed head maturation and reduced yields, keeping markets relatively high
  • Markets appear to have plateaued and will be steady to slightly lower over the next 7-10 days
  • South Texas prices continue to boast a large price spread, with fair to average quality being reported – Markon continues to recommend DCs that are able take advantage


  • Cauliflower markets remain elevated as supplies are limited
  • Similar to broccoli, the quality is better in Arizona and California desert regions but low temperatures will slow growth and reduce yields this week
  • Suppliers are cutting ahead of scheduled acreage to compensate:
    • 12-count packs are extremely limited on the open market; contracts are being prorated for the next one to two weeks as supplies ramp up
      • Orders are being covered at open market where possible
      • Substituting 16-count packs will help to increase order fill rate as growers are forced to harvest and pack product from immature fields
