Cabbage markets are up amid tightening supplies and increased demand.

  • The recent cold temperatures, rain, and morning frosts experienced in the AZ/CA desert and Oxnard, California throughout late January and February have reduced West Coast supplies
  • Weaker quality and lower yields per acre have significantly reduced availability for processors, driving the general market higher
  • AZ/CA desert and Oxnard suppliers are delaying or skipping harvests to allow current size to increase, as well as balling down what is harvested to remove damaged outer leaves
  • Expect elevated prices and lower case weights through February
  • Volume is also down in Florida and Texas amid unseasonably cold weather and storms
  • Demand is strong due to the Catholic Lent and St. Patrick’s Day holidays; prices will rise over the next 10-14 days
