UPDATE: GREEN CABBAGE

July 8, 2022

Cabbage markets are elevated; supplies are tight.

  • The heatwaves experienced in June have reduced yields at the field level
    • Disease/insect pressure and more seeder core have developed
    • Lower yields per acre have significantly reduced availability for processors, driving the general market higher
  • Central Coastal California suppliers harvested ahead of schedule last month to avoid quality issues, causing a supply gap until second plantings mature
  • East Coast cabbage stocks remain limited
    • The Eastern North Carolina season is finished, while Western North Carolina volume is low
    • Production is getting underway in Ohio, Michigan, New Jersey, and New York
  • Expect limited supplies and elevated prices over the next 10-14 days
