Celery supplies are tightening due to continued cold temperatures in Oxnard and Santa Maria, California and the Arizona/California desert growing regions.

  • Markon First Crop (MFC) and Ready-Set-Serve (RSS) Celery are available
  • Persistently cold and windy weather is slowing growth and limiting harvestable supplies in Arizona and California growing regions
  • The Arizona/California desert season is beginning to wind down; some suppliers will be finished after the first week of March with the balance expected to transition production fully back to Oxnard, California by mid-March
  • Florida supplies remain available; markets are expected to inch up as demand increases in all growing regions
  • Expect continued rising prices over the next month, unless warmer weather increases growth
