Cauliflower markets have rapidly declined this week.

  • Markon Essentials (ESS) Cauliflower is available in Salinas, California
  • Lower prices are due to:
    • Favorable weather pushing growth ahead of schedule in the Salinas and Santa Maria Valleys
    • Growers are harvesting remaining fields before new crop desert supplies start shipping in November
  • Quality ranges from fair to good; discoloration/dark spotting, leafy curds, and elevated insect pressure are affecting some lots
  • Prices are expected to climb by mid- to late next week and remain volatile through November as production transitions south
