Earl’s Organic Buyer’s Notes March 10th

Vegetable Market Supply Is Still Affected by Cold and Rainy Weather. The end of February and beginning of March brought an extreme cold front with heavy rain throughout California and Mexico.  The desert deal out of Yuma, Arizona and Coachella is ending early and the seasonal transition north to the Salinas Valley is starting late.

The cooler weather has pushed back production. We are seeing lower volumes on vegetables and prices are increasing. Items immediately affected are green beans, cauliflower and broccoli. Prices are going up on all bell peppers, especially red bells.  There will be more to come as these weather patterns stabilize.
