The cauliflower market has peaked and is falling fast as supplies ramp up in the Salinas and Santa Maria Valleys. Markon Essentials (ESS) Cauliflower is available.

  • Abnormally low temperatures and intense rainfall this winter created supply gaps during the transition from the Arizona/California desert growing regions to Salinas and Santa Maria in mid-April
  • Recent favorable weather, specifically warmer nighttime temperatures, has helped push supplies along
  • Expect prices to continue trending lower through the month of May, as mild weather promotes good growth and strong quality
  • Good color and consistent size has been noted in recent packs

Please contact your Markon customer service representative for more information.
