Supplies of sweet baby broccoli remain limited. Markon First Crop (MFC) and Ready-Set-Serve (RSS) Sweet Baby Broccoli are limited; packer label is being substituted as needed.

  • The majority of sweet baby broccoli is grown year-round in the Salinas Valley; a small amount is grown in the Arizona/California desert during the winter months
  • Salinas Valley yields are below normal as a result of low temperatures and heavy rainfall in December and January
  • Quality is good despite growing condition challenges; some lots are exhibiting purple shade due to sustained cold weather
  • Stocks are expected to remain tight through the end of February, at minimum

Please contact your Markon customer service representative for more information.
