GET NOTIFIED BEFORE PRICES GO UP
Prices finally stabling out this week such as lettuces, peppers, tomatoes, and more.
As you can see, all markets are correcting nicely. Cauliflower is
turning around and will be higher as the week goes along.
Lettuce was the correct weight today, and it was beautiful. I
hope this is a sign of things to come.
Not sure who watches the news, but California is in another
shutdown. The majority of product is in Arizona right now
which goes to our advantage. The pandemic is definitely
affecting business overall as restaurant biz is usually crazy for
Christmas and New Year’s, and we will not see any of that this
year. I fear the worst is yet to come for all of our businesses.
Unless the weather in Yuma changes, I don’t see any shortages
for the next 10 - 14 days, with the exception of cauliflower.
Freight rates are in the $8’s, topping out at $9. This definitely
helps cut a few dollars off per package.
Tomatoes still coming down. noticed a shift in demand for them could see low $20 range next week. as for plums and grape tomatoes they are all below the $20 range also due to lower shipping rates.
cilantro and jalapeno markets are week and will stay below the $30 threshold which is great, the quality looks great.
Any questions please text or call thanks!
Good afternoon not much happening this week very slow but prices continue to rise again as shippers cant get enough drivers. latest shipping cost from California was $12k record cost.
Lettuce and romaine will be over $60 by end of week does look great. the recall on romaine was from 10/15 so no concerns with the crops. To early to tell when prices will come down all depends on the shippers and getting enough drivers.
Tomatoes on the rise, not many coming into the market must be due to lack of demand as things are slow. still no update from growers and government on the price increase. i do have number 2 tomatoes, quality is ok with a short shelf live.
Spanish onions are on a new crop now. they cut very nice with a slight price increase, some of last crop onions are still in the market cheaper if you prefer but very limited. red onions did happen to go down in price.
Green peppers falling in price probably the only thing that isnt crazy in price. with choice green peppers below $20. way to much supply in the market. red peppers continue to stay the same price no signs of it going up.
Crops will begin soon in Yuma Arizona and hopefully can keep up with demand. prices will most likely be down once they start in the next month. Lettuce and romaine are soon to come from there. some weather has affected the price of few items that are grown in the south but very little change.
will update if anything changes thanks!
Native produce has arrived as tomatoes look great! Anything native you will find pricey.
Lettuce market continues to fall could see below $25 soon as Canada produces more.
Romaine on the rise as freight prices increase, no signs of going down until trucking prices come down.
Tomato market is stable no reasoning for going up as Canada competes. new shipments arriving each day with plums and rounds looking great.
Cilantro coming down again as new jersey sends more loads, looks better than California.
Parsley still high coming from California as trucking prices are high.
Onions are still short especially red onions. some more coming tomorrow morning. Prices are coming down.
Euro cucumbers is a short item at the moment as a truck got stuck at the Canadian border the other day increasing the price by double. regular cucumbers are available.
If anything changes I will let everyone know thanks.
Everything is still up in price as lack of harvesting takes place do to a lot of farmers not working during the pandemic. This doesn't help as demand rises as more restaurants start to open.
Spanish onions still high due to lack of supply same with red onions. Colossal onions not available till next week.
Avocados very steady no signs of going up. 60ct and 48ct are available and look great.
Tomato market is still fluctuating from the lack of supply coming out of florida. mexico is still harvesting.
Plum tomatoes are a short item not much in the market earlier In the week. still waiting on more shipments.
Cilantro continues to rise in price due to lack of supply coming out of NJ. California is helping keep up but pricey.
Lettuce and romaine staying the same did go a little lower later in the week most likely will be lower going into the next week as Canada competes with California products.
If anything else changes will notify thank you!
Due to the virus and slowdown of restaurants we took sometime away from updates. as things start to pickup we will begin to due updates again. Sorry for the inconvienence
Will see and increase on items as restaurants start to open up again and people start to get out. Lettuce and romaine are the first to increase and will most likely continue going forward. Due to the lack of help and truckers on the road shipping prices have increased. As for quality everything looks great no problems there. The crews picking the crops are much lower almost half of them are working trying to keep up.
Tomato- coming down as other growers start to harvest and not just florida.
Avocado- Prices are staying the same, no signs of shortage there. quality looks great. limited ripe avocados available.
Will post another update on tuesday after the holiday, will be closed
Market affect due to covid-19, This week should be interesting to see the real outcome for all this and to see what the future for restaurant dining will be till this all cools down. As of right now ive noticed a slight drop in how much people are taking in the market. Only a few companies that are buying most of everything at the market have been big chain stores such as grocery stores. This week will have limited supply as these chains continue to buy everything to keep up with demand. Due to the virus restaurants are most likely going to see an increase in take out over dining in. Ive also heard most people will start to use cards to defeat the process of interacting with cash.
Lettuce and Romaine have been affected going into this week for a few reasons mostly because of weather in Yuma Arizona as it rained for 3 days straight and limited harvesting being done. Yuma got about 3 feet of rain last week. most of the fields were flooded and all muddy making it impossible to harvest. cauliflower and celery weren't harvested at all, should expect a big shortage and increase in price this week.
Tomato market hasn't changed at all, its actually gone down, but could change because of big chains buying most of the supply. Mexico has been supplying a lot of the demand and hopefully continue going forward.
Green Peppers have seen a increase in price as Florida is the only one growing them at the moment. Choice green peppers are the the cheapest just a bit smaller.
Will be sending more updates this week to keep everyone up to date with whats happening.
