Top Five Alerts

01. Brussels Sprouts

Supply is extremely limited due to quality issues. The issues are a product of the recent rain. Expect these conditions to remain for the next few weeks, even a month. 

02. Apples

As of now, the market is steady. However, it is projected to increase after the first of the year due to a hopeful demand increase with schools back in session. 

03. Citrus (Navels)

Due to the rain, the harvest times for the Central Valley have been limited. This will and has already resulted in a market that is becoming more active especially with school back in session. 

04. Mushrooms

Mushrooms continue to have extreme issues with labor and disease. Supply is expected to become better in January. The price is high. 

05. Broccoli

Light supplies result in a high market. The weather can put a halt on growth cycles. Do not expect a change anytime soon.
