Domestic Brussels sprout volume is low but starting to rise in the Salinas and Castroville growing regions. Despite increases, demand still far exceeds available supply. Expect elevated markets and limited stocks to persist until Salinas production ramps towards the end of July. Markon First Crop (MFC) and Ready-Set-Serve (RSS) Brussels Sprouts are limited; packer label is being substituted to fill orders.


  • Stocks are diminishing
  • Late season quality issues have continued to reduce yields


  • Production is ongoing in Oxnard
  • Salinas Valley production remains behind schedule due to stubbornly cold weather through the spring and early summer
  • Small sprouts dominate availability as growers must harvest immature fields to fill orders
