The market for Brussels Sprouts remains stubbornly high. Supplies are very light and insufficient to meet current demand, driving markets higher.

  • Markon First Crop (MFC) and Ready-Set-Serve (RSS) Brussels Sprouts remain limited; packer label is being substituted to fill orders
  • After beginning the Salinas, California season late due to heavy precipitation this winter and cool weather this spring, suppliers were forced to harvest ahead of schedule through much of the summer
  • Harvesting immature fields to keep up with strong demand has kept size profile skewed heavily towards the smaller side
  • Prices are expected to remain elevated through October, at minimum, with additional growing regions from Mexico set to enter the market by mid-December
