UPDATE: SQUASH

July 1, 2022

Squash prices are climbing due to diminishing supplies and quality. Recent hot weather and rain have been factors on the East Coast.

  • East Coast volume is tightening
    • Recent weather has accelerated crop transitions
    • Quality in the Carolinas is average; yellow squash stocks are experiencing discoloration issues
    • Supplies are expected to increase in New Jersey and Virginia over the Fourth of July weekend
    • Additional harvesting has started in Kentucky and Michigan (along with other smaller regional deals)
  • The West Coast has steady volume from the Baja Peninsula, Santa Maria, and the San Joaquin Valley; however, increased demand has pushed up prices
  • Expect markets to ease over the next two weeks as production begins in new growing regions
