UPDATE: BROCCOLI MARKET

October 6, 2021

Broccoli prices have risen due to tight supplies from multiple growing regions.

Salinas Valley and Santa Maria

  • Markon First Crop Broccoli is available
  • Stocks are expected to remain tight over the next several weeks
  • Cool weather is forecast to slow growth, resulting in fewer available supplies over the next two weeks
  • Expect elevated markets through October

Mexican Broccoli (Crossing into South Texas)

  • Stocks will be very limited over the next several weeks
  • Heavy rain has reduced yields in the primary growing region
  • Demand is extremely strong out of this region due to the freight savings (compared to ordering from California)
  • Expect high prices to persist through October
