Market Update

Berries: Warm weather in California and rainy local weather making strawberry quality fair at best.

Corn: There is a limited supply of fresh corn as we change growing areas. 

Broccoli: Broccoli continues to be extremely limited and expensive. New blocks will be harvested next week that should provide some relief on availability, pricing will remain high for the next 1.5-2 weeks. 

Apples: Many shippers are using foodservice sizes (113ct- 150ct) for the USDA program. Naturally, shippers have firmed up their prices (even on Red Delicious). Gala/Honeycrisp continue to be on the tighter side.

Peppers: We will see a small gap in red and yellow bells with transition to new growing region in Fresno area.

Potatoes: Markets overall are holding steady with some slight increases in the larger sizes due to a smaller profile in the remaining Burbank storage crop out of Idaho. Consumer bag demand remains active with retail and USDA box program business.
