There isn’t much change on squash and zucchini pricing from last week.  Markets remain strong and demand exceeds supply.

Tomato markets cranked up again last week, with the cooler weather in Mexico slowing production in the tomato factories.

There are lighter supplies of romaine this week as most growers are preserving supply in order to minimize gaps at the end of the desert season.

Rain in California strawberry growing regions over this past weekend along with rain in the forecast this week will cause supply to be tight.

The Mexican Asparagus crop is currently fairly tight as we start the week.

Egg prices continue to climb as we head towards Easter weekend.
