Tomato markets are increasing due to cooler weather on the East Coast and harvesting transitions in Mexico. Markon First Crop (MFC) Tomatoes are available.

  • Florida growers are experiencing cold fronts this week, reducing overall yields of round, Roma, cherry, and grape tomatoes
    • The Ruskin/Palmetto region has smaller-size fruit (6×7) as the season winds down over the next week
    • The Immokalee region is underway with good mix of sizes and great quality
  • Mexican supplies are extremely tight as growers transition from the Baja Peninsula to the main winter growing region of Sinaloa in the month of December
    • Baja round and Roma quality is average due to recent inclement weather
    • Volume will decline in Eastern Mexico (crossing into South Texas) over the next two weeks as the fall season ends
    • The Sinaloa season will start December 15 in a light way; expect seasonal volume in January
  • Grape tomato markets are elevated; recent cold weather has hindered maturity
  • Expect higher round and Roma prices over the next two weeks due to increased holiday demand
