Tomato growing regions in Florida and Mexico are impacted by poor weather this week. Markets remain firm. Markon First Crop (MFC) Tomatoes are available.

  • The Florida supply of round, Roma, cherry and grape tomatoes is limited this week due to overlapping rain events and cold temperatures which slowed production
    • With Labelle region winding down, Naples is the primary region and reporting good quality
    • Expect snug supplies for the month of February due to bloom drops combined with normal light acreage planted for winter
  • Mexican growers are battling cold weather this week which is slowing production in new growing region of Sinaloa
    • Larger sizes (4×5 Rounds and XL Romas) are most abundant; quality is very good
    • Mexico planted less round tomatoes (more Romas) this season which could cause stronger than normal markets in February
    • The East Mexico and Baja seasons are winding down
  • The elevated Grape tomato market is slowing falling with West Mexico season (crossing in Nogales) starting up
  • Expect slightly higher round and Roma prices over the next week as growing regions rebound from cold weather conditions
