Commodity Updates
Keep up-to-date on how weather and other conditions across the country and the globe affect the quality, availability, and pricing of your fresh fruits and produce.

Broccoli:  There are finally better supplies of broccoli which is creating lower markets. This is also helping processors fill much needed floret orders. Good quality from all growing regions with nice green color and tight beads.

Brussels Sprouts:  Supplies are extremely limited and markets are high. The weather is still holding back supplies for this week and market will remain high.

Green & Yellow Squash:  Squash is in an extreme situation, rain and cool weather has continued in South Florida. With cool weather and no Sunshine production remains low. As long as this weather pattern continues this market will remain at very high levels.

Kale:  Supplies remain steady and quality is excellent with dark green color and minimal yellowing.
 
Iceberg Lettuce:  Temperatures in the Yuma region are expected to be in the Mid 70s with lows in the 50s for the entire week. No rain is in the forecast. With this being said, supplies have picked up with many suppliers. Volumes are expected to be moderate throughout the week. Defects will continue to be seen . These defects include light color, some frost damage on the outer leaves and pinking. The weights look to average 39-43 pounds.
 
Leaf Lettuce:  A few suppliers are holding to their pricing from the
previous week while others have eased up. Temperatures will be stronger for the week in all the growing regions. Blister and peel will not go away, however. These defects will continue throughout the month of January. This continues to be an industry wide issue. Quality is suffering
with all leafy greens, not just romaine. Butter will be light in availability throughout the month. The weights on romaine have been averaging 26-30 pounds with a length of 11-12 inches, while green leaf has been approximately 21-23 pounds.
