Sweet baby broccoli supplies remain extremely scarce; demand exceeds supply.

  • Salinas Valley stocks are extremely limited
  • Continued heavy rains, high wind, and lower-than-average temperatures have reduced yields in February and March
  • Suppliers have cut back harvesting days due to wet fields, as well as to allow plantings to mature, further reducing available cases
  • Markon inspectors are seeing more product from the fields week over week, starting with this week (March 20)
  • The revised expectation for shipping all orders at 100% fill rate is now the week of April 3
  • Expect elevated markets into the middle of next week, with one more rain event on the horizon before drier spring weather arrives and aids growth
