Tomatoes markets are elevated due to this season’s severe storms. Markon First Crop (MFC) Tomatoes are extremely limited; packer label will be substituted, as necessary.

  • All varieties of Florida tomatoes are limited after recent hurricanes
    • Small sizes and No. 2 grades with scarring are most plentiful
    • Improvements aren’t expected until January when South Florida’s replanted crops are harvested
  • Mexican round and Roma harvests are adequate in both Eastern Mexico and Baja
    • Demand is strong, pushing up markets
    • Sufficient supplies will resume in January when replanted crops are harvested in Culiacan
  • Grape and cherry tomatoes are snug; however, will rebound by mid-December
  • Most suppliers are requesting quality leniencies for the remainder of 2022
  • Expect high prices over the next six weeks
