August 26, 2021

Zucchini and yellow squash markets are higher due to recent severe weather.

  • The East Coast supplies are limited this week due to recent Tropical Storms Fred and Henri
    • Heavy rain and wind has affected production and quality
    • Yellow squash supplies are tighter; prices are elevated
  • California production in Santa Maria and the Central Valley is consistent
    • Demand has increased prices
    • Overall quality is good
  • Recent heatwaves on Mexico’s Baja Peninsula affected quality; additional grading is required
  • Expect overall inventory to increase over the next three to four weeks as new growing regions in North Carolina and mainland Mexico start up
