Broccoli supplies remain steady with good availability coming out of multiple growing regions. Salinas and Oxnard, California are the primary pull locations at this time. Organic Broccoli out of Salinas began in April. Supplies have been strong after a smooth transition, and quality has been excellent. See Broccoli availability.
Demand remains high on all types of carrots - conventional and organic, out of the US and Mexico. Mexican supply is mostly conventional and loading out of McAllen, TX. Supply has been light, however, due to delays at the Texas border crossings. Organic availability out of California remains light as demand outweighs supply. We expect supplies to increase in May as more supply comes online. See Carrot availability.
Growers are reporting steady supply and demand of conventional and organic lemons in California. Organic volumes are expected to remain steady through May, and conventional through July. You can expect a gap between July and September when Mexico ramps up, so we recommend buyers stock up on lemons now to be covered during the gap while supply is strong out of CA. Sizes are peaking on the larger side due to fruit hanging on the trees longer while the market was low with light demand earlier in the season. See Lemon availability.
