Here is a quick summary of this week’s (September 27th) Market News highlights regarding the produce industry:
CHERRY TOMATOES: Are extremely short. Baja-Mexico’s production is down, which is where much of the U.S., especially west of the Rockies, was relying on for supply. Michigan has good production but has not been able to harvest due to cool, rainy weather. It’s difficult to find cherries and difficult to find products to load with to get cherries to markets.
ASPARAGUS: The market remains elevated. Strong demand and limited stocks, especially in Mexico, are holding prices up. Quality is good. Tips are firm, the color is bright, and the flavor is grassy.
CILANTRO: Supplies are expected to be plentiful this week. Now is a good opportunity for promotion!
LIMES: The market is level; new crop volume is rising. Quality has improved: incidences of stylar, oil spotting, and scarring are minimal.
RASPBERRIES: Stronger than expected volume as our new plantings peak in California. We will remain steady into next week and up trend for 4 – 6 weeks thereafter.
