UPDATE: SQUASH

August 11, 2022

Squash supplies on the East Coast are reduced due to recent weather. Markets are up slightly.

  • East Coast volume and yields (out of Michigan, Ohio, New Jersey, and New York) are limited this week due to past rain/hot weather
    • Zucchini quality is good with some minor scuffing visible; yellow squash quality is average
    • Rain and cooler temperatures this week will limit supply in the Great Lakes region
    • North Carolina will start new fields at the end of August
  • California has steady volume out of Santa Maria and will ramp up over the next week as they work new fields; quality is very good
  • The Baja Peninsula has limited supply as some growers have finished until mid-September
  • Expect markets to increase slightly over the next week
