Ford's Produce Supply Update

The Asparagus market out of Mexico is stronger with less volume available and tighter supplies.

Demand exceeds supplies for all sizes and cuts of cauliflower and broccoli. Quality in Yuma, Arizona and California's Imperial Valley has been excellent.

Most lettuce farmers are struggling through the heat of the tail end of the desert season and looking forward to starting in fresh fields in Salinas.

Tomatoes are still plentiful as mentioned last week.  Small-sized tomatoes are bringing better prices but there is still a lot of big sized tomatoes.

Squash and zucchini prices are coming off and should continue to fall slightly for the next 7-10 days.

Onions seem to be coming from everywhere at once and there are plenty to choose from.
