Market Report

Market Alerts

Berries (Raspberries) - Supplies are limited and will remain so for the next two weeks, due to previous cold weather now impacting Mexican harvests. Quality is good.
Berries (Strawberries) - Heavy demand and light harvests continue to keep supplies light and pricing higher, however quality remains good. Warmer weather is expected this week in California’s Oxnard and Salinas regions, which should speed up production and stabilize pricing over the next few weeks.
Grapes (Green) - Quality remains mostly fair and pricing higher out of Chile, with a wide range of both. The market is expected to stabilize next week.
