Celery prices are elevated. The Arizona/California desert season is winding down, shifting demand to Oxnard and Santa Maria, California.

  • Markon First Crop (MFC) Premium Celery is available
  • The Arizona/California desert season is winding down
    • Some growers have transitioned to Oxnard production exclusively
    • The desert season will be completed by the end of March
  • Supplies in many of the current fields are small and light weight; some Oxnard and Santa Maria growers estimate production is 7 to 14 days behind schedule due to sustained cold temperatures
  • Florida yields are expected to fall over the next 7 to 10 days, before rebounding in late March and finishing strong in late April; quality is excellent
  • Salinas production will begin in early to mid-June
  • Markets are expected to remain elevated through March at minimum
