August 25, 2021

Markets remain elevated; volume continues to decrease as the Salinas/Watsonville season is past its peak.

Salinas/Watsonville

  • Markon First Crop Strawberries are available out of the Salinas/Watsonville region
    • This is North America’s primary growing area for strawberries at this time
    • Crops are past their peak
    • Supplies will continue to diminish until the fall Santa Maria, California crop ramps up in mid-September
  • Driscoll’s is allocating and holding to six-week averages due to light volume
    • MFC orders continue to be filled in full
  • Demand remains strong; quality is good
