Markon First Crop (MFC) Fennel is limited; packer label is being substituted as necessary to fill orders.

  • Markets remain elevated
  • New crop harvesting continues to be delayed due to previous heavy rainfall in some growing regions
    • Suppliers have opted to lay out on harvest days to allow for/avoid:
      • Crops to size up
      • Poor harvesting conditions after heavy rains
      • Cutting ahead of schedule to compensate for low yields
  • Quality ranges from fair to below average; mechanical damage, small bulbs, and fragile stocks have been reported
  • A new cold snap is set to hit the CA/AZ desert this week, which could continue to hamper supplies for 7-10 days
  • Expect more plentiful supplies as we enter February and crops enjoy drier weather
