The jumbo carrot market is steadying off this week. You can find organic and conventional carrots out of Bakersfield on the Marketplace now. Product out of Mexico, mostly conventional, is down in supply and demand. We are seeing a wide range of quality. See Carrot availability.
Cauliflower prices are rising due to a lower yield, while demand remains consistent. Quality is fair with good weight and coloring. Sizes are varying now, but are expected to improve over the next few weeks. See Cauliflower availability.
The lemon market is steady this week with availability out of District 2 (Oxnard/Riverside, CA) and District 1 (Desert Region). D1 has mostly fancy-grade lemons, while most D2 has a solid supply of choice-grade lemons. Lemon availability is tighter for smaller-sized fruit, and peaking on larger sizes. Supply is expected to remain steady. See Lemon availability.
