Market Report

Here is a qucik overview of this coming week in the fruit and vegetable markets. You should expect:

Avocado: Short supply with demand far exceeding supply. We are expecting prices to go up substantially with limited availability.

Bell Peppers: These are the most reasonable markets we’ve seen all summer.

Blueberries: Supplies are limited and will continue to be light until the import season begins in 2 weeks.

Brussels Sprouts: The market remains historically high with limited supplies.

Carrots: The heat has stunted carrot growth in the California growing region, and very few jumbo size carrots are being produced.

Limes: Tropical storm Franklin caused some crop losses, delayed harvests and quality issues.

Oranges (113/138): The unusual growing season with substantial rain has caused shortages of smaller sized oranges. The Navel crop started a little early last year around mid-October, but it is too early to truly predict it’s starting date. There is a very real possibility of a gap between the finish of the Valencia crop and the start of the Navel crop.

Cucumbers: With a cool front approaching, expect production to decrease by next week.

Green Onions: Limited supplies due to high temperatures in the growing region of Mexico.

Green Squash: The market is getting tighter.

Hopefully, this market information will help you to plan specials, promotions, and make menu adjustments in advance of the rapidly changing produce markets.
