Sweet baby broccoli supplies remain extremely scarce; demand exceeds supply. Markon First Crop (MFC) and Ready-Set-Serve (RSS) Sweet Baby Broccoli are extremely limited.

  • The vast majority of supplies are grown in the Salinas Valley year-round
  • Salinas Valley yields continue to be far-below normal due to rain and sustained cooler-than-normal temperatures
  • Suppliers have cut back harvesting days due to wet fields and to allow current plantings to mature
  • Packed-produce quality remains strong despite adverse growing conditions; purple shade is present in many lots, a result of the near freezing nighttime temperatures
  • Stocks will remain extremely limited for the next 7-10 days at minimum as lower-than-average temperatures persist and precipitation moves through the area
