MARKET ALERT

LEAFY GREENS: In a normal year, produce crops "transition" twice per year from the Northern Salinas Valley to the Southern "Desert" region of lettuceSouthern California and Arizona. Crops typically transition from North to South the week of Thanksgiving, and from South to North the week of Easter. This year, the Southern fields started maturing early and the transition began about three weeks earlier than normal. Successive planting and great weather in the Southern Region gave us favorable markets (lower than normal pricing) throughout the early Winter, but then the rains fell. The atmospheric “river”, as it was named, created planting gaps that are causing the desert to finish quickly and short of the Easter week goal. The "river" also delayed Northern crops from being planted. Growers in the Salinas Valley do not anticipate full harvest to begin until late April and even early May. The crops most devastated by this gap include Romaine, Romaine Hearts, Green Leaf, Red Leaf, Butter Lettuce, Iceberg, Broccoli, Cauliflower, Spinach, Baby Spinach, Spring Mix (and its ingredients), as well as Arugulas. All leafy greens are well above normal pricing. All major and minor growers will be affected by this "gap" created by Mother Nature. Lettuce heads will be smaller and yields will be light. There are no substitutes or alternatives. More importantly, we are just entering the "gap" and do not forecast relief until early May. Field Fresh Farms has planted Spring Mix ingredients as well as spinach varieties in Huron (near Fresno) to assist in the transition. Fortunately, the crops may be our saving grace as other leafy greens sky rocket. We will update you as markets and products warrant.

 

AVOCADO: The California avocado crop will be down about 50% from last year due to recent rains and flooding. The lack of California fruit allows avocado mexico haas californiaMexico to drastically drive up prices by slowing down production, harvesting and packaging. Prices have already reached the low 60's and will continue upward. We expect to level off in the high 60's. The market is not expected to drop until June when Peruvian fruit is available to ease global demand.
