Markon First Crop (MFC) Broccoli and Essentials (ESS) Cauliflower are available. Prices are steady to slightly lower in the Arizona-California desert and Mexican growing regions amid weak demand.


  • Domestic quality ranges from fair to good
    • A period of freezing temperatures followed by rain is creating conditions that can degrade quality and generally slow maturation, but ample supplies will keep prices from moving much higher, if at all
    • Expect increased occurrences of pin rot/brown bead, yellowing, and smaller crown size
  • Mexican-grown product is available for loading in South Texas at slightly lower FOB costs; ample supplies are shipping from both Northern and Central Mexico and exhibiting strong quality due to dry, temperate weather
  • Expect markets to remain relatively steady as both demand and yields begin to increase in February


  • Ample supplies are available despite cooler temperatures and rain reducing yields slightly
  • Large sizes may tighten as mature fields “bunch together” with weeks of alternating cold and warmth
  • Expect markets to continue to slide through this week before turning around within 7-10 days
