Market Alerts

  • Honeydew and Cantaloupes are tight on market because the domestic market remains hot as offshore arrivals attempt to provide relief. 
  • Collards remain short but lettuce and romaine are very active on the market with some quality is still in question
  • Organic Veg: As we transition greens down south, quality remains fair at best and firm pricing on what’s left of the northern crop. Insect damage, yellowing, blistering, and light weights are most notable issues.
  • Cauliflower supplies are loosening up slightly and quality remains good to fair.
  • Rain in Mexico is causing supply issues on Chile Peppers, Summer Squash, and Cucumbers.
  • Colored organic bells peppers are extremely tight right now. This includes bell peppers, and mini sweets.
  • Green beans are very tight due to rain and the pull for Thanksgiving is driving the market up fast
